Full Devotion

Make Me Full of Devotion To You
Let no riches make me ever forget myself,
no poverty make me to forget You:
Let no hope or fear,no pleasure or pain,
no accident without,no weakness within,
hinder or discompose my duty,
or turn me from the ways of Your commandments.
O let Your Spirit dwell with me forever,
and make my soul just and charitable,
full of honesty,
full of devotion to You.
- Jeremy Taylor, 1613-67
