The Suscipe

The Suscipe of Catherine McAuley

My God, I am yours for time and eternity

Lord, I am yours forever.

It is you who must teach me to trust in your providence,

Loving Lord.


You are God of love and tenderness.

I place my faith in you,

And I ask that you grant me

Acceptance of your will,

Loving Lord.


Take from my heart all painful anxiety,

Let nothing sadden me but sin.

And let delight be hoping

To see your face.

God, my all.
