O Lord Jesus Christ,
I long to live in your presence,
to see your human form and to watch you walking on earth.
I do not want to see you through the darkened glass of tradition,
nor through the eyes of today’s values and prejudices.
I want to see you as you were,
as you are,
and as you always will be.
I want to see you as an offense to human pride,
as a man of humility,
walking amongst the lowliest of men,
and yet as the Savior and Redeemer of the human race.
– Soren Kierkegaard, 1813-55
Let Me See You As You Are
