Anselm's prayer

I do not endeavor, O Lord, to penetrate thy sublimity, for in no wise do I compare my understanding with that; but I long to understand in some degree thy truth, which my heart believes and loves. For I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand.

From St. Anselm, Proslogium and Monologium as quoted by Michael Horton in The Christian Faith, p. 23
