For Light

O my God,
I give myself to thee,
with all my liberty,
all my intellect, heart and will.
O Holy Spirit of God,
make me as thy disciple;
guide me,
illuminate me,
sanctify me.
Bind my hands,
that they may do no evil;
cover my eyes
that they may see it no more;
sanctify my heart,
that evil may not dwell within me.
Be thou my God; be thou my guide.
Wherever thou shall lead me, I shall go;
whatsoever thou forbid of me,
I shall renounce;
and whatsoever thou command of me,
in thy strength I shall do.
Lead me, then,
unto the fullness of thy truth. Amen.

Cardinal Henry Manning (1808-1892)
