Take, O Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my whole will.
Thou hast given me all that I am and all that I possess: I surrender it all to Thee
That Thou mayest dispose of it according to Thy will. Give me only Thy love and Thy grace;
With these I will be rich enough, and will have no more to desire.Amen

 Pauline Curley
