Life in and of Yourself,
You are greater than can be thought—
far greater than this vessel wrought
with sin can fathom.
Lord, bridge this chasm
of exploration and belief;
still my soul and meet my grief
with Your immense splendor.
O Blessed Truth, help me remember
Your extent and Your immensity.
Rid me of propensity
to run from beauty and light.
Grant me grace and give me sight
beyond seeing. Consume my being
with Your ineffable goodness.
