Cause of Our Joy, together with you I bless
And praise the great glory of the good God;
Direct my steps toward the Heavenly Homeland,
And please give me the sweet honey of humility.
In danger and doubt, I seek your sincere face,
Take me by the hand and lead me again to safety;
You swiftly and cleverly lead me out of the wicked
Woods of temptation and onto the plateau of peace.
Draw me into the life-giving light of your Savior-Sun,
And pray that I enter fully into His limitless love;
Teach me to surrender, to surrender myself to Him,
To surrender totally, completely, and joyfully.
Plead with the Lord that I be purified from affection
For the useless and dangerous things in my life;
Help me to recognize the evil one’s subtle yet
Savage plans to maliciously murder my soul.
