Give Us Steadfast Hearts

New London Ledge Lighthouse

Give us, O Lord,
      steadfast hearts, which no unworthy thought can drag downwards;
      unconquered hearts, which no tribulation can wear out; 
      upright hearts, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.

Bestow upon us also, O Lord God,
      understanding to know you,
      diligence to seek you,
      wisdom to find you,
      and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thomas `a Kempis, 15 century
