Pierce, sweetest Lord Jesus, the marrow and heart of my soul with the most pleasant and wholesome wound of your love, with true, serene, and most holy apostolic charity, so that my soul may languish and melt with love for you alone, so that it may desire you and long for your courts, to long to be dissolved and be with you.
Make my soul hunger for you, the bread of Angels, the refreshment of holy souls; our daily bread, containing every sweetness and savor and delightful taste.
Let my heart hunger for you and feed on you, whom the Angels desire to look upon, and may your sweet savor fill the innermost part of my soul; may it ever thirst for you, the fountain of life, the fountain of wisdom and knowledge, the fountain of everlasting light, the torrent of pleasure, the riches of the house of God.
May it ever encompass you, seek you, find you, run to you, reach you, meditate on you, speak of you, and do all things to the praise and glory of your Name, with humility and discretion, with pleasure and delight, with ease and affection, with perseverance to the end; so that you alone may be my hope for ever, my whole assurance, my joy, my rest and tranquility, my peace, my pleasure, my fragrance, my sweetness, my food, my refreshment, my refuge, my help, my wisdom, my portion, my possession, and my treasure, in whom my mind and my heart may be firmly and steadfastly rooted for ever. Amen.
