To pass my days and nights...

And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness;
it will be for those who walk on that Way. - Isaiah 35:8a

I desire, and ask it from your love -
to dwell always close to You, in body or at least in heart;
to behold Your Eucharistic beauty and glory; 
to feed ever on Your love; 
to pass my days and nights, as far as You allow,
in blessing, in loving, 
and in contemplating You!"
