Anima Christi

I say this medieval prayer every morning.  I really love it and just wanted to share it with all y’all.  The name means “Soul of Christ.”  It is simply the first two words of the prayer in Latin.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit 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 I may praise Thee with Thy saints
Forever and ever

Anima Christi set to music
