29th Night

Grant me not, O Lord, wealth that burns gratitude,
And grant me no routine driven life,
Lest I forget my mortality, lest I strive too little for You,
Break my bonds, O Lord,
Free me from material and soulless hunger,
Give me sight which understands the depth of things; the remains of a world astray
Fill me with passion for your words, O Lord,
Harden not my heart,
Lead me not away.
