Father,
  I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.
  Whatever you may do, I thank you:
  I am ready for all, I accept all.
  Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
  I wish no more than this, O Lord.
  Into your hands I commend my soul;
  offer it to you
  with all the love of my heart,
  for I love you, Lord,
  and so need to give myself,
  to surrender myself into your hands,
  without reserve,
  and with boundless confidence,
  for you are my Father.

Blessed Charles de Foucauld
