Daily Prayer of St. Francis

My God and my all,
who are you,
sweetest Lord, my God?
And who am I,
a poor worm,
your servant?
Holiest Lord, I would love you!
Sweetest Lord, I would love you!
Lord, my God,
I give you all my heart and body,
and earnestly desire,
to know how to do more for your love. Amen.
