Let the same heart be in you
that was in Christ Jesus,
who, though divine, did cling to equality with God,
but in complete self-emptying
entered a humble human life, as a slave,
and became obedient to the point of death—
even death on a cross.
Therefore every knee should bend and
every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord.
your deepest humility and self-emptying
is not of rank or status or even suffering, but of love;
your greatest miracle is this:
that you loved the people who are impossible to love.
My Chief, my Beloved,
here is my salvation, and my calling.
I love you and entrust myself to you.
May your heart be in me,
that with all my life
I may thank you,
I may worship you,
I may follow you.
