I adore You, Lord and Creator,
hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I adore You for all the works of Your hands,
that reveal to me so much wisdom,
goodness and mercy, O Lord.
You have spread so much beauty over the earth
and it tells me about Your beauty,
even though these beautiful things are but a faint reflection of You,
And although You have hidden Yourself
and concealed Your beauty,
my eye, enlightened by faith,
reaches You and my soul recognizes its Creator,
its Highest Good,
and my heart is completely immersed in prayer of adoration.
My Lord and Creator,
Your goodness encourages me to converse with You.
Your mercy abolishes the chasm which separates
the Creator from the creature.
To converse with You, O Lord,
is the delight of my heart.
In You I find everything that my heart could desire.
Here Your light illumines my mind,
enabling it to know You more and more deeply.
Here streams of graces flow down upon my heart.
Here my soul draws eternal life.
O my Lord and Creator,
You alone, beyond all these gifts,
give Your own self to me
and unite Yourself intimately with Your miserable creature.
O Christ, let my greatest delight be to see You loved
and Your praise and glory proclaimed,
especially the honor of Your mercy.
O Christ, let me glorify Your goodness and mercy
to the last moment of my life,
with every drop of my blood and every beat of my heart.
Would that I be transformed into a hymn of adoration of You.
When I find myself on my deathbed,
may the last beat of my heart be a loving hymn
glorifying Your unfathomable mercy.
