Hyssop by H. Zell (Own work) CC BY-SA 3.0
O my Lord, since it seems you are determined to save me,
I ask that you may do so quickly.
And since you have decided to dwell within me,
I ask that you clean your house, wiping away all the grime of sin.
Teresa of Avila, 1515-1582, Spanish mystic, Carmelite nun and reformer
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
