O God, all that I am
and all that I have is from You.
You have given me my gifts
of body and soul.
You have numbered me among your favoured children.
You have showered me with countless graces and blessings.
From all eternity
You have thought of me and loved me.
How shall I ever love You in return?
And now in your merciful goodness
You are coming into my soul
to unite Yourself most intimately with me.
You came into the world for love of man,
but now You are coming from the altar for love of me.
You are coming to fill me heart with Your holy love,
my Creator, my Redeemer,
my Sanctifier, my God.
O Jesus, I want to return this love.
I want to love You with all the powers of my soul.
I want to belong only to You,
to consecrate myself to You alone.
Jesus, let me live for You;
let me die for You.
Living and dying may I be Yours.
