Inspired by “A Broken Prayer” from A Threefold Cord by George MacDonald, specifically the following passage:

Oh, take me like a child,
If thou hast made me for thyself, my God,
And lead me up thy hills. I shall not fear,
So thou wilt make me pure, and beat back sin
With the terrors of thine eye: it fears me not
As once it might have feared thine own good image,
But lays bold siege at my heart’s doors.
