If you oh God
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 unhesitatingly
Is that I will be with you every moment 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 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 only 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 could do nothing without you
But with you, I believe everything is possible
Except of course serving the devil.
Oh God draw me to you closely
That I may forever proclaim your glory
For you are my God, my all, my loving Father
Draw me close by your side forever.
