Take Lord, Receive
Fr. Myles Sheehan, SJ, explains how to surrender ourselves to God using “Take Lord, Receive,” the prayer written by St. Ignatius
Take Lord, Receive:
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace.
That is enough for me.
