Augustine’s Plea

Augustine.jpg

Through your own merciful dealings with me, O Lord my God, tell me what you are to me. Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.” Say it so that I can hear it. My heart is listening, Lord; open the ears of my heart and say to my soul, “I am your salvation. Let me run towards this voice and seize hold of you. Do not hide your face from me. Let me die so I may see it, for not to see it would be death to me indeed.

(Augustine, Confessions)
