Oh Jesus, My Love
By St Paul of the Cross (1604-1775)
may my heart be consumed
in loving Thee.
Make me humble and holy;
giving me childlike simplicity;
transform me into Thy holy Love.
life of my life,
joy of my soul,
God of my heart,
accept my heart as an altar,
on which I will sacrifice to Thee,
the gold of ardent charity,
the incense of continual,
humble and fervent prayer
and the myrrh of constant sacrifices!
