How happy is the heart, O God,
that can love an object so pleasing as Yourself,
the heart that can find its peace
in Someone so beautiful!

How secure and durable
is the happiness that is found in You
since You endure forever!

Neither life nor death can separate
such happiness from its object.

Move my heart, O God,
to repentance for all my faults,
for all the many times I have looked elsewhere for happiness.

Let the disorder in my body
be the means through which my soul is put into order.

I can now find no happiness in physical things;
let me find happiness only in You.

– Blaise Pascal, 1623-1662
