A Prayer amidst Joys

Father Most Merciful,

Fill my heart with joy unto overflowing, yet grant me first a heart submissive to You.
Let tears of rejoicing pour from my eyes, yet grant me first true repentance.
Surround me with the delights of friendship, yet grant me first to love as You love.
Scatter pleasures in my life like lilies before a lover, yet grant me first obedience and trust.

Amen.
