Poem: “An Old Nun’s Prayer”

An Old Nun’s Prayer

With these hands,
I have served You Lord.
With this heart,
I have loved You all my life.

If my hour be at hand,
Let it come, let it come.
For I have awaited this moment,
To meet You.

You know me fully,
You have seen my soul.
It is Yours, it has been Yours
And it will be Yours.

There is nothing in me
That I held back.
I have given all,
That You have given me.

Let my days be short.
Let my hour be at hand.
That I may finally see,
My Love, my Love, my precious Love.

I come to You pure as You formed me.
There is no other but You.
Take me now in Your arms,
Hold me as I have hoped You would.

Praise God
