Beautiful Prayer


I've always liked this one from St. Bonaventure.

Friendship with Christ
Christ on the cross bows his head,
Waiting for you,
That he may kiss you;
His arms outstretched,
That he may embrace you,
His hands are open,
That he may enrich you;
His body stretched out,
That he may give himself totally,
His feet are nailed,
That he may stay there;
His side is open for you,
That he may let you enter there.

-St. Bonaventure
