A Meditation on ‘Your Will Be Done’

CelticCapital26May the Holy Spirit distill on me
down from out of heaven,
to aid me and to raise me,
to bind my prayer firmly
at the throne of the King of life.

In the befitting state of grace,
as is your own will that I should do,
O Lord God of life.

In the love of God,
in the affection of God,
in the will of God,
in the eye of God,
in the purpose of God,
in the charge of God.

As your own angels.
as your own saints.
as your own household
desire in heaven,
so may I desire on earth!
