Prayer to the Lord

He it is who appears suddenly; he does not give me time to prepare.
And how would I prepare, anyway, against one such as he?
Nothing can withstand him, if that be his wish:
he is the unconquered one, the victor, inexorably advancing.
Lord of Radiance, I wait for you.
I will not resist.
Come like a blasting wind;
even then, I will be here with mind open before you,
even then, I will be here with heart open before you,
even then, I will be here with hands open before you,
awaiting your coming.
