Virgin Most Renowned, pray that my worries
May be whitewashed by holy Wisdom;
I wish my life to be immersed in the most
Peaceful illumination of a Light heart.
Yet how often I am headstrong and
Stubbornly struggle for total control;
My white knuckles ever so tightly squeeze
The steering wheel of selfishness.
With your soft, sweet, melodious voice,
You convince me to let go and let God;
With the Paraclete as my pilot, I am learning
To live on spiritual cruise control.
Petition the Holy One, that I may choose
Heaven in all my words and actions;
May my heart melt in the warm ocean
Of His soothing mercy and love.
