Prayer for Priests

prayer

Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord.

Keep them, for they are thine–

Thy priests whose lives burn out before

Thy consecrated sbrine.

Keep them, for they are in the world

Though from the world apart,

When earthly pleasures tempt, allure-

Shelter them in Thy beart.

Keep them and comfort them in hours

of loneliness and pain

When all their lifeof sacrifice

For souls seems but in vain.

Keep them, and oh remember, Lord

They have no one but Thee

Yet they have only human hearts

With human frailty.

Keep them as spotless as the Host,–

That daily, they caress—

Their every thought and word and deed,

Deign, dearest Lord, to bless.

I taken from St. Therese of Lisieux
