For a Serious Seeking

Keep me O Lord, while I tarry on this earth, 
in a serious seeking after you, 
and in an affectionate walking with you, 
every day of my life; 
that when you come, I may be found 
not hiding my talent, 
nor serving the flesh, 
nor yet asleep with my lamp unfurnished, 
but waiting and longing for you.
