Jesus, Savior and Lord,
You suffered in my name,

Not for penance, but for love.
Amen

Lord Jesus, in my blindness,
Remove the scales from my eyes.
In Your power and glory, Lord, lead me

The one that is suffering, forgotten, alone,
The one I will serve in Your love.
Amen

Lord, in Your mercy,
Look not on those times

Not my life but Yours.
Amen

Lord, may Your Kingdom,
Like a mustard seed,
Be planted in my heart
To grow within me.
Fed by faith and bearing love,
To be planted again
In all who seek You.
