Domine Iesu, noverim me. Lord Jesus, Let me Know Myself

St Augustine is one of the Saints that I admire the most... He and his mother, St Monica, really have a deep love for God..
Here is one of the prayer he wrote.

Domine Iesu, noverim me
Lord Jesus, Let me Know Myself

LORD Jesus, let me know myself and know Thee,
And desire nothing save only Thee.
Let me hate myself and love Thee.
Let me do everything for the sake of Thee.

Let me humble myself and exalt Thee.
Let me think of nothing except Thee.
Let me die to myself and live in Thee.
Let me accept whatever happens as from Thee.

Let me banish self and follow Thee,
And ever desire to follow Thee.
Let me fly from myself and take refuge in Thee,
That I may deserve to be defended by Thee.

Let me fear for myself,
let me fear Thee,
And let me be among those who are chosen by Thee.
Let me distrust myself and put my trust in Thee.

Let me be willing to obey for the sake of Thee.
Let me cling to nothing save only to Thee,
And let me be poor because of Thee.
Look upon me, that I may love Thee.
Call me that I may see Thee,
And for ever enjoy Thee.
