IMITATION OF CHRIST IN YOUTH




I feel within a want
For ever burning there;
What I so thirst for, grant,
O thou who hearest prayer!


This is the thing I crave:
A likeness to thy Son;
This would I rather have
Than call the world my own.


Like him, now in my youth,
I long, O God, to be,—
In tenderness and truth,
In sweet humility.


'Tis my most fervent prayer:
Be it more fervent still—
Be it my highest care;
Be it my settled will!
