I know that if I do not love Thee
with all my heart,
with all my mind,
with all my soul and with all my strength,
I shall love something else with all my heart and mind and soul and strength.
Grant that putting Thee first
in all my lovings
I may be liberated from all lesser loves and loyalties,
and have Thee as my first love,
my chiefest good and my final joy.
~ George Appleton, Oxford Book of Prayer
