O Lord,make haste and illumine the night.
I long for You
as the dying long for You.
Say to my soul that nothing happens
without Your permitting it,
and that nothing of what You permit
is without comfort.
O Jesus, Son of God,
You who were silent
in the presence of Your accusers
restrain my tongue
until I find what I should say and how to say it.
Show me the way and make me ready to follow it.
It is dangerous to delay, yet perilous to go forward.
Answer my petition and show me the way.
I come to You as the wounded go to the doctor
In search of aid.
Give peace o Lord to my heart!
