Saint Teresa of Avila

A Love Song by St. Teresa of Avila


Majestic sovereign, timeless wisdom,

your kindness melts my hard, cold soul.

Handsome lover, selfless giver,

your beauty fills my dull, sad eyes.

I am yours, you made me.

I am yours, you called me.

I am yours, you saved me.

I am yours, you loved me.

I will never leave your presence.

Give me death, give me life.

Give me sickness, give me health.

Give me honor, give me shame.

Give me weakness, give me strength.

I will have whatever you give.
