 Jesus, Son of the Virgin pure,

guide me through this life.

  May Your love be in all my thoughts,

    Your likeness in my face.

  For love of You

     may my heart warm to others

    who are warm-hearted to me,

    and to those who are not.

Be with me always by day, by night,

  by night, by day.
