prayer of columba

My prayer for today.

Almighty Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
eternal, ever-blessed, gracious God,
to me, the least of saints, to me allow
that I may keep a door in Paradise;
that I may keep even the smallest door,
the furthest door, the darkest, coldest door,
the door that is least used, the stiffest door,
if so it be but in Thine house, O God!
if so it be that I can see Thy Glory,
even afar and hear Thy voice, O God!
and know that I am with Thee--Thee, O God.

W. Muir, the 'Prayer of Columba'
