O Lord, our God, we believe in Thee, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. As far as I have been able, as much as Thou hast given me the power to do so, I have sought for Thee. I have desired to see that in which I believe; much have I striven and labored.
Lord, my God, my only hope, let me never tire of seeking Thee, but make me seek Thy face with constant ardor. Give me the strength to seek after Thee-Thou who hast made me find Thee, who hast given me more and more the hope of finding Thee.
Thou seest my strength and my weakness; do Thou sustain the one and heal the other; Thou seest my strength and my ignorance. Where Thou hast opened to me, come make me welcome; where Thou hast closed to me, open to my plea. Give me to remember, understand, and love Thee.
