The Words of St. Blofius, O Pelages Sanctæ.


Ocean of sweetness and divine Love, my God, make hafte, and give thyself to me, that I may worthily give myself back to thee. Let me never reft here, but be ever foaring up to thee, that in thee I may reft, and breathe forth my foul with an entire heart, and a full defire, and a most flaming affection; let me ever prefer thee my God, before all the creatures of the world, and for the love of thee let me renounce all things of a tranfitory delight. O the only and true joy of my foul. Feed me, O Lord, at the facred table of thy divinity; this only thing I beg, I defire, that a most ardent and vehement love may penetrate my foul, and fo replenish it, that it may be totally changed into thee. O moft sweet Redeemer, grant, that with the love of thee I may be all on fire, and that That fire of divine love may totally confume me, and that I may but live in the fweet fruition of thee my God. Let me not feel, or know any other object than thee alone. O overflowing Sea of moft facred Divinity, draw me to thyfelf, and drown me there; take from me all the affections of my heart, and fo apply to thyself, that I may perfectly be dead to all other objects but thee, O my God,
