My Gracious Lord

My Gracious Lord,

How beautiful the graces

That flow, unceasingly,

In torrents, from Your Sacred Heart.

Though I am all gratitude,

I am so small and unworthy.

I make small return,

For Your magnificent beneficence

Broaden my capacity to love,

And, thereby, to render infinite thanksgiving,

Putting on Christ,

As the incense of gratitude,

Ever, an offering pleasing to You.
