O merciful God,
I offer you all the beats of my heart
All the sighs of my chest for as many acts of love
O that I had Mary’s most loving heart!
O that I had the heart of all the saints above!
O that I had your own heart,
O sweet Jesus!
To make up for what is still missing
For me to love you as I would,
My desire to see you loved is burning
To see you blessed and worshipped by all
And especially by your people in Africa,
Now in the present age and forever in eternity.
