help us spread your love
everywhere we go.
Flood our souls
with your Spirit and Life.
Possess our whole being so utterly
that our lives may only be
a radiance of yours.
Shine through us and be so in us
that every soul we come in contact with
may feel your presence in our souls.
Let us thus praise you
in the way you love best -
by truly loving those around us.
Let us preach you
without preaching with words,
but by our example,
by the loving influence of what we do,
the fruitful evidence of the love
our hearts have for you.
May it be so.
