Give me the humility to bow to you in all men.
When you trample me under your feet, to shake off all my unlikeness to you,
Grant me the resolve to cling to your feet with love.
When you take up the sword to strip me off all selfhood,
Give me the strength to surrender to your wrath.
When you lift me up into the heavens of your bosom,
Grant me the courage to sever the bonds of earth.
