Be steadfast

Oh God! Grant to me the mercy to endure another day of suffering.

To those who know You Father, this world is a land of sorrows.

Everyone seems to be willing to sell their inheritance with You for some trivial earthly gain.

Few there be who are willing to remain steadfast to you, Oh Father.

Even I did not realize how much a man would be made to suffer for knowing you, Father.

But I would sooner die than to live my life without You.

I know that when I die I shall be in Heaven with You.
