Constantly attentive to your guidance,
The still, small voice within, that shows the way.

Constantly rejoicing in your goodness,
And following your Son, so I don’t stray.

Please help me to commune with you today –
Constantly confessing my transgressions,
Always quick to listen, and obey.

Constantly beseeching your forgiveness,
And serving you in all I do, and say.
