"Soul of Christ" -- A Prayer for Fridays and the Eucharist

The Anima Christi
Traditionally said at Communion and on Fridays.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, refresh me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesu, hear me;
Within thy wounds hide me;
Suffer me not to be separated from thee;
From the malicious enemy defend me;
In the hour of my death call me;
And bid me come unto thee;
That with thy saints I may praise thee;
            Through the ages of eternity. Amen.
XIV Century
