A Prayer from Clare of Assisi

I come, O Lord, unto Your sanctuary [...].
As I hope in You, O Lord,
Inspire me with that confidence
Which brings me to Your holy mountain.
Permit me, Divine Jesus,
To come closer to You,
That my whole soul may do homage
To the greatness of Your majesty;
[And] that my heart, with its tenderest affections,
May acknowledge Your infinite love.
