Teach Me.

O Lord my God.
Teach my heart this day
where and how to find You.

You have made me and re-made me,
and You  have bestowed on me
all the good things I possess,
and still I do not know you.
I have not yet done
that for which I was made.

Teach me to seek You,
for I cannot seek You
unless You teach me,
or find You
unless You show Yourself to me.

Let me seek You in my desire;
let me desire You in my seeking.
Let me find You by loving You;
let me love You when I find You.

- The Prayer, O Lord My God, by Saint Anselm
