Soul of my Saviour

soul-of-my-saviour

Soul of my Saviour

Soul of my saviour, sanctify my breast,

body of Christ, be thou my saving guest,

blood of my saviour, bathe me in thy tide,

wash me with water flowing from thy side.

 

Strength and protection may thy passion be,

0 blessed Jesus, hear and answer me;

deep in thy wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me,

so shall I never, never part from thee.

 

Guard and defend me from the foe malign,

in death’s dread moments make me only thine;

call me and bid me come to thee on high

where I may praise thee with thy saints for ay.

 

Latin, 14th Century Translation
