O my Jesus, I love you! I love you! I love you!
Most Sacred Heart, Most Sacred Love of my lover,
My Savior, My God and my all!
How can you love me? So unworthy, so fragile, so fickle!
Yet you do and I know it
and I cannot tell you how deeply, how immensely
and how intensely and completely I wish to return your love for me
- by living, dying and bringing honor and glory to you
by helping in a priestly, selfless way to spread your kingdom, O Christ My King!
All that I am, have and do I give to you!
No strings! No conditions! Just total, confident love.
There is nothing, Lord Jesus, nothing at all that you cannot have
- nothing at all that I will not give - or give up - if you want me to.
I know this is easier to say than to do.
I know that I am a coward and a sinner and a weakling.
But my confidence and love for you is such
that I know whatever you ask you will more than give the strength to give you
- not fearfully, reluctantly, begrudgingly - but cheerfully and gladly.
Your will! Let me do your will, my Jesus!
Completely, totally, unreservedly - with no strings attached!
I love you! I love you! I love you!
I wish to be completely and totally yours.
Come Lord Jesus!
Come into my heart, come into my soul, come into my body,
and take me, possess me, transform me,
only keep me always close to you
- then dispose of me as you will!
