Lord, I am Yours,
and I must belong to no one but you.
My soul is yours, and must live only by you.
My will is yours,
and must love only for you.
I must love you as my first cause,
since I am from you.
I must love you more than my own being,
since my being subsists in you.
I must love you more than myself,
since I am all yours and all in you.
- Saint Francis de Sales
