Prayer to Christ

Perfect what you have begun,
and give me what you have made me long for,
not because I deserve it, but because of your kindness
that came first to me.

Most merciful Lord,
transform my tepid heart into one that loves you ardently.
I thirst for you, I hunger for you, I desire you,
I sigh for you, I covet you:
I am like an orphan taken
from a compassionate father.
Weeping and wailing, with all its heart the orphan
constantly clings to that dear face.

"Prayer to Christ"
