Thou–

Have mercy
Upon us.
Have mercy
Upon our efforts
That we Before Thee,
In love and in faith,
Righteousness and humility,
May follow Thee,
With self-denial, steadfastness, and courage,
And meet Thee
In the silence.

Give us
A pure heart
That we may see Thee,
A humble heart,
That we may hear Thee,
A heart of love
That we may serve Thee,
A heart of faith
That we ma love Thee,

Thou
Whom I do not know
But Whose I am.

Thou
Whom I do not comprehend
But Who hast dedicated me
to me to my fate.
Thou–

–Dag Hammarsköld
