Words by Catherine McAuley (adapted). Music composed by Elaine Deasy rsm (Americas). Sung by Marie Cox rsm (The Congregation)
I am yours for time and eternity,
Lord, I am yours forever.
It is you who must teach me to trust in your Providence, Loving Lord.
You are a God of love and tenderness.
I place my trust in you,
And I ask that you grant me acceptance of your will,
Take from my heart all painful anxiety.
Let nothing sadden me but sin.
And then let my delight be hoping to see your face,
God, my all.
This version of the Suscipe is available on the album 'Circle of Mercy', a collection of Mercy inspired compositions written by Mercy Sisters and Associates from different parts of the world. Further information is available here

Prayer for Beatification of Catherine McAuley
Loving God You chose Catherine McAuley for the service of your people who are Poor, Sick and Uneducated. You inspired her to found the Sisters of Mercy so that these good works might endure.
