Blessed saviour, receive what I have.
Blessed saviour. Gloria.
Strengthen my body and uplift my mind
Let my heart be cleansed from darkness,
Let it become the temple of the Holy Ghost.
And let me speak and act and think and live

Under his inspiration for His name’s sake.
Blessed saviour, receive what I have.

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis
Laudamus te
Benedicimus te
Adoramus te
Glorificamus te
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Blessed saviour receive what I have
Let me speak and think and act and live!
