giver of purity and strength,
pour down upon my soul.
Make of my heart a living chalice
from which grace shall constantly flow
on those that love You,
and especially on poor sinners that offend You.
Teach me to honor You
and to make You honored by others.
Give me power to draw to You cold and hardened hearts,
that they may feel how infinitely
Your consolations surpass those of the world.
