If you oh God would appear to me today
And gave me a chance to ask you for one thing only
The very thing I’d ask you readily
Is that I will be with you every moment of everyday
If you oh Lord asked me why I chose this thing
Because my God, you are my everything
All I desire is to be united with my God
For only by this I can love everyone good and bad.
If you oh Lord should grant me this special grace
That every moment I can gaze at your face
I’d be the happiest of all
For with you, I can love all people.
If you my God would graciously give
This greatest gift that one can receive
Then I wouldn’t mind what kind of life you want me to live
Be it as you will, Apostolic or contemplative.
Just don’t let me go away from you
For I can do nothing without you
But with you, I believe everything is a yes,
And so my Lord, I surrender my mess.
Oh God draw me to you closely
That I may forever proclaim your glory
For you my God, my all, my loving Father
Draw me close by your side forever.
