A Prayer of St. Augustine

220px-sandro_botticelli_050Lord, when I look on my own life it seems
you have led me so carefully, so tenderly,
that you have attended to no one else;
but when I see how wonderfully
you have led the world and are still leading it,
I am amazed that
you have time to attend to such as I.

Source: Augustine of Hippo, 354-430, possibly from his Confessions.
