Prayer for this week

 Prayer of the week

My spirit longs for Thee

within my troubled breast,

Though I unworthy be,

Of so Divine a Guest.


Of so Divine a Guest

Though I unworthy be,

Yet has my heart no rest

Unless it comes from Thee.


Unless it comes from Thee,

In vain I look around;

in all that I can see

No rest is to be found.


No rest is to be found

But in thy blessed love:

O let my wish be crowned,

And send it from above.

John Byron (1763)
