Hearts for God

Give us, O Lord,
STEADFAST hearts,
which no unworthy thought can drag downwards;
UNCONQUERED hearts,
which no tribulation can wear out;
UPRIGHT hearts,
which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.

Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God,
UNDERSTANDING to know Thee,
DILIGENCE to seek Thee,
WISDOM to find Thee,
and a FAITHFULNESS
that may finally embrace Thee.

-Thomas Aquinas
