Heavenly Father, Do with Me as You Will
By Blessed George Matulaitis MIC (1871-1927)
I kiss the hand of Your providence,
I entrust myself fully
and completely to Your guidance.
Heavenly Father, do with me as You will,
if it pleases You, O Lord,
to lead me along wondrous ways.
Behold Your servant!
Send me where You will!
Like a child I hasten to Your embrace, carry me.
If it pleases You to lead me,
along a road beset by adversity,
obstacles and difficulties,
I thank You very much.
I think that as I travel this road,
I will not lose my way
because it is the road
taken by my Redeemer Jesus Christ.
From the Journal of Blessed George, Archbishop.
