Father Rafic, from the Jerusalem kehilla, wrote the music for the prayer of Blessed Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916), a French ascetic who lived many years in the Sahara desert. He is the spiritual father of the Little Brothers and Sisters of Jesus. The song is sung by Benny and Magali from the Jerusalem kehilla and Andrea designed the video clip. The song was first sung at the Feast of Charles de Foucauld in the Jerusalem kehilla in 2011.

Father,
I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father
