Oh God —
My eyes are blind. I can’t see what lays ahead,
so please guide me with Your Eyes,
so that I may not stumble and founder into the abyss of hell
and stray onto the path of those who are damned.
I beg of You, oh God —
I put my soul in Your Hand,
the very Hand that has created it:
don’t let it shatter. Salvage it from ruin,
so that it may return to You in whole — pure and humble as when You created it.
I am bowing and prostrating before You, oh God —
Tears running down,
I know, only You can guide me,
save me, enlighten me,
uphold me and love me — like no others do.
I know You see me, hear me, and smiles upon me:
I am Your servant looking for You.
