Length of days does not profit me except the days are passed in thy presence, in thy service, to thy glory.
Give me a grace that precedes, follows, guides, sustains, sanctifies, aids every hour. . .
I launch my bark on the unknown waters of this year,
with thee, O Father, as my harbour,
the, O Son, at my helm,
thee, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails."
(from Valley of Vision)
