Prayer of St. Francis de Sales

“Lord, I am Yours,
     and I must belong to no one but You.
My soul is Yours,
     and must live only by You.
My will is Yours,
     and must love only for You.
I must love You as my first cause,
     since I am from You.
I must love You as my end and rest,
     since I am for You.
I must love You more than my own being,
     since my being subsists by You.
I must love You more than myself,
     since I am all Yours and all in You.
Amen.”

-St. Francis de Sales
