O holy Angel at my side,

Go to the church for me,

Kneel in my place at Holy Mass

Where I desire to be.

At Offertory, in my stead,

Take all I am and own,

And place it as a sacrifice

Upon the altar throne.

At holy Consecration’s bell,

Adore with seraph’s love,

My Jesus hidden on the Host,

Come down from heav’n above.

Then pray for those

I dearly love,

And those who

Cause me grief,

That Jesus’ Blood

May cleanse all hearts,

And suffering souls relieve.

And when the priest

Communion takes,

Oh, bring my Lord to me,

That His sweet Heart

May rest on mine,

And I His temple be.

Pray that this
Sacrifice Divine

May mankind’s sins efface;

Then bring me

Jesus’ blessing home—

The pledge of every grace.
