I abandon myself into Your hands;
do with me as You will.
Whatever You may do, I thank You:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me
and in all Your creatures —
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into Your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to You with all the love of my heart,
for I love You, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into Your hands
without reserve, and with boundless confidence,
for You are my Father.
