Ut Videam (That I May See)


My Lord, My God, I ask that I may see
The Way to follow what You ask of me
For now I neither see nor understand;
I ask that You may lead me by the hand

I know that Heaven is the final goal
And long to give my heart, complete and whole
But details now escape me; grant me hope
That I may resolutely climb this slope

I trust in You as knowing what is best 
Do not subject me in the final test
To trials that my strength, with You, can’t bear;
I trust You’ll save me with Your loving care

I thank You for this calling given me
A faithful soul I wish to always be 
And if there are some details You now hide
I now accept whatever You decide
