Write Thy blessed name, O Lord, upon my heart,
there to remain so indelibly engraven
that no prosperity and no adversity
shall ever move me from Thy love.
Be Thou to me a strong tower of defense,
a comforter in tribulation, a deliverer in distress,
a very present help in trouble, and a guide to heaven
through the many temptations
and dangers of this life.
- Thomas à Kempis
