Searching for God

O Lord, my God, teach my heart this day
where and how to see you
where and how to find you.

You have made me and remade me,
and you have bestowed on me
all good things I possess
and still I do not know you.
I have not yet done that
for which I was made.

Teach me to seek you in desire.
Let me desire you by my seeking.
Let me find you by loving you,
Let me love you when I find you.

-St. Anselm
