Prayer Of Blessed Elizabeth Of The Trinity
Trinity, whom I adore, calm and changeless mystery,
I hide within Your Life: "You in me, and I in You."
Make my soul Your dwelling place,
Your heav'n on earth, Your home of rest.
May I ne'er leave You alone,
But keep me there
In living faith.
Word of God, eternal Sound, I give all to learn from You;
Through darkest poverty I will cling to Your embrace.
PRAISE OF GLORY I shall be,
Oh, Star of mine with lustrous beams:
Facinate me with Your Light,
And hold me fast
Within "MY THREE."
Dove of Love, Consuming Fire, form in me His mystery.
For Him, the Word of God, I will be humanity.
Father mine, look down on me,
And see in me Your only Son.
Oh, my Life, my Joy, my All,
You are "MY THREE,
