" Soul's Desire "
Lord, You are my soul's delight;
To You my spirit does aspire.
I love You with all my might;
You are the Object of my desire.
You lift me out of every plight
And trial no matter how dire.
Keep me forever in Your sight;
My love for You will never tire.
For all the blessings I pray this night
Grant those graces I require...
That I may reach a pinnacle of height
And be given the means to acquire...
The Gift of Your Everlasting Light,
Igniting my soul with Holy Spirit Fire....
Where with Angels and Saints in heavenly attire
I also may PRAISE YOU with harp and lyre.
