MY LORD AND SAVIOUR, IN YOUR ARMS I AM SAFE

31 Dec

My Lord and my Saviour, in Your arms I am safe; keep me and I have nothing to fear; give me up and I have nothing to hope for. I pray You not to make me rich, I pray You not to make me very poor; but I leave it all to You, because You know and I do not.

If You bring pain and sorrow on me, give me the grace to bear it well. If You give me health and strength and success in this world, keep me ever on my guard lest these great gifts carry me away from You.

Give me ever to aim at setting forth Your glory; to live to and for You; to set a good example to all around me; give me to die just at that time and in that way which is most for Your glory, and best for my salvation. Amen.

– Bl. John Henry Newman
