O perfect Love

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

O perfect love,
all human thought transcending,
lowly we kneel
in prayer before thy throne
That theirs may be
the love which knows no ending
whom thou forever more
dost join in one.

O perfect life,
Be thou their full assurance
Of tender charity,
And steadfast faith,
of patient hope,
And quiet, brave endurance,
With childlike trust that fears
not pain nor death.

Grant them the joy
which brightens earthly sorrow,
Grant them peace
Which calms all earthly strife;
and to life’s day
the glorious unknown morrow
that dawns upon
eternal love and life.
