Lift up our souls, O Lord,
to the pure, serene light of thy presence;
that there we may breathe freely,
there repose in thy love,
there may be at rest from ourselves,
and from thence return,
arrayed in thy peace,
to do and bear what shall please thee;
for thy holy name's sake.
(A prayer by Dr. E.B. Pusey, Anglican theologian, 1800-1882.
I'm not sure where I originally found this, but I love it.
To "be at rest from ourselves," such a generally unspoken need.)
