My Lord, I believe, and know, and feel that you are the Supreme Good. I believe that, beautiful as is your creation, it is of no account, compared with you. And therefore, since I perceive you to be so beautiful, I love you, and desire to love you more and more. My God, you know how little I love you. I would not love you at all, except for your grace. Keep my whole being fixed on you. Let me never lose sight of you; and let my love for you grow more and more every day.
