our church has compiled several prayers to reflect on during lent this year. this one strikes me. it moves me.

"i worship you, Lord; i bless you, God the Good; i beg you, Most Holy; i fall down before you, Lover of humankind.
I give you glory, O Christ, because you, the Only Begotten, the lord of all things, who alone are without sin, gave yourself to die for me, a sinner unworthy of such a blessing: you died the death of the cross to free my sinful soul from the bonds of sin.
What shall i give you, Lord, in return for all this kindness?
Glory to you for your love.
Glory to you for your mercy.

St. Ephraim of Syria (306-373)
