Adoration 4

SPIRIT of Life, Who fillest all the world, I worship and adore Thee.
Spirit of Light, Who teachest all the Truth, I worship and adore Thee.
Source of all gifts of nature and of grace, of knowledge natural and supernatural, I worship and adore Thee.
As Thou hast made and endowed me, taught and reproved me, borne with me, recovered me, restored me; now with the ardor of a quickened soul, with the devotion of an humble mind, with the best homage of a thankful heart,
Lord and Giver-of-Life, I worship and adore Thee. Amen. (Oremus, 1925, p.22).
