Lord, Make Me Clean

O my Savior
who am I that You should invite me
to receive You for the food of my soul?
Is it possible that You,
the God of infinite purity,
should come and dwell in my heart?
Lord, if You wish,
You can make me clean.
Say but the word and my soul shall be healed.
I come then,
O my amiable Savior, to receive You,
but I come covered with shame
and confusion at the sight of my sins,
but full of confidence in Your mercy,
and in the love which You have for me.
