For Harmony of Heart with God

O send thy light and thy truth,
that we may live alway near to thee, our God.
Let us feel thy love,
that we may be as it were already in heaven,
that we may do all our work as the angels do theirs.
Let us be ready for every work,
be ready to go out or come in,
to stay or to depart,
just as thou shalt appoint.
Lord, let us have no will of our own,
or consider our true happiness
as depending in the slightest degree
on anything that can befall us outwardly,
but as consisting altogether
in conformity to thy will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Henry Martyn (1781-1812)
