Yours

DSCF0053

Lord, I am yours, and I must belong to no one but you.

My soul is yours, and must live only by you.

My will is yours, and must love only for you.

I must love you as my first cause, since I am from you.

I must love you as my end and rest, since I am for you.

I must love you more than my own being, since my being subsists by you.

I must love you more than myself, since I am all yours and all in you.

Amen.

~Saint Francis De Sales
