Into Thy hands
Into Thy hands, O Lord
and into the hands of your holy Angels,
I commit and entrust this day my soul,
my relations, my benefactors,
my friends and enemies,
and all your Catholic people.
Keep us, O Lord, through the day,
by the merits and intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and of all your Saints,
from all vicious and unruly desires,
from all sins and temptations of the devil,
and from sudden and unprovided death and the pains of hell.
Illuminate my heart with the grace of your Holy Spirit;
grant that I may ever be obedient to your commandments;
suffer me not to be separated from you, O God,
who lives and reigns with God the Father
and the same Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
… St Edmund, Pray for Us …
