From Fear Not the Night by St. John of the Cross
Let go of what you have. As the night descends, remind me again that the soul that walks in love neither rests nor grows tired. I know that it is foolish and ignorant to think that I can achieve union with you without emptying my life of all my trivial passions. But I seem forever content to restrict my soul to childish things, of how much spiritual good and abundance I so easily pass up, blinding myself to the difference between what I am content with and the total transformation that you have offered me.
Descend on my soul like a river of peace: to take away my uncertainties, my fear of the dark.
