Prayer for My Salvation and My Redemption

In confidence of Your goodness and great mercy, O Lord, I draw near unto You, as a sick person to the healer, as one hungry and thirsty to the fountain of life, a creature to the creator, a desolate soul to my own tender comforter. Behold, in You is all whatsoever I can or ought 83 to desire; You art my salvation and my redemption, my hope and my strength. Rejoice therefore this day the soul of Your servant; for unto You, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. Amen.

Thomas à Kempis
