Create in me a pure heart,
O my God,
and renew a tranquil conscience within me,
O my Hope!
Through the spirit of power confirm Thou me in Thy Cause,
O my Best-Beloved,
and by the light of Thy glory reveal unto me Thy path,
O Thou the Goal of my desire!
Through the power of Thy transcendent might
lift me up unto the heaven of Thy holiness,
O Source of my being,
and by the breezes of Thine eternity gladden me,
O Thou Who art my God!
Let Thine everlasting melodies breathe tranquillity on me,
O my Companion,
and let the riches of Thine ancient countenance
deliver me from all except Thee,
O my Master,
and let the tidings of the revelation of Thine
incorruptible Essence bring me joy,
O Thou Who art the most manifest of the manifest
and the most hidden of the hidden!
