Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water of the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me:
Within Thy wounds hide me:
Permit me not to be separated from Thee:
From the malignant enemy defend me:
In the hour of my death call me,
And bid me come to Thee,
That with thy Saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

J. B. Young, The Roman Hymnal (New York: Fr. Pustet & Co., 1884).
