A prayer late at night

Lord, make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge;
Let me know by love what I know by understanding.
I owe you more than my whole self,
But I have no more,
And by myself I cannot render the whole of it to You.

Draw me to you, Lord,
In the fullness of Love.
I am wholly yours by creation;
Make me all yours too, in Love.

Anselm of Canterbury (c. 1033 – 1109)
