Morning Prayer

My God, I love you above all else
and you I desire as my final goal.
Always and in all things,
with my whole heart and strength
I seek you.
If you do not give yourself to me,
you give nothing.
If I do not find you,
I find nothing.
Grant me, therefore,
most loving God,
that I may always love you
for yourself above all things,
and seek you in all things
in the present life,
so that finally I may
find you and keep you
for ever in the world to come.

— Thomas Bradwardine
