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.
Separated from Thee let me never be.
From the malignant enemy, defend me.
At the hour of death, call me.
And close to Thee bid me.
That with Thy saints I may be Praising Thee, forever and ever.

Written by St. Thomas More

Good Lord, give me the grace, in all my fear and agony,
to have recourse to that great fear and wonderful agony
that Thou, my sweet Savior, had at the Mount of Olive before Thy most bitter passion,
and in the meditation thereof, to conceive ghostly comfort and consolation profitable for my soul.

Almighty God, take from me all vainglorious minds, all appetites of mine own praise,
all envy, covetise, gluttony, sloth, and lechery, all wrathful affections, all appetite of revenging,
all desire or delight of other folks’ harm, all pleasure in provoking any person to wrath and anger,
all delight of exprobation or insultation against any persons in their affliction and calamity.

And give me, good Lord, a humble, lowly, quiet, peaceable,
patient, charitable, kind, tender, and pitiful mind,
with all my works, and all my words, and all my thoughts,
to have a taste of Thy Holy, Blessed Spirit.

Give me, good Lord, a full faith, a firm hope, and a fervent charity,
a love to the good Lord incomparable above the love to myself;
and that I love nothing to Thy displeasure, but everything in an order to Thee.

Take from me, good Lord, this lukewarm fashion,
or rather keycold manner of meditation, and this dullness in praying unto Thee.

And give me warmth, delight and quickness in thinking upon Thee.
And give me Thy grace to long for Thy holy sacraments,
and especially to rejoice in the presence of Thy very blessed body, sweet Savior Christ,
in the holy sacrament of the altar, and duly to thank Thee for Thy gracious visitation therewith,
and at that high memorial, with tender compassion, to remember and consider Thy most bitter passion.

Composed by St. Francis Assisi

Wherever we are, in every place, at every hour,
at every time of the day, every day and continually,
let all of us truly and humbly believe, hold in our heart
and love, honor, adore, serve, praise and bless,
glorify and exalt, magnify and give thanks
to the Most High and Supreme Eternal God
Trinity and Unity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Creator of all, Savior of all who believe and hope in Him,
and love Him, Who, without beginning and end,
is unchangeable, invisible, indescribable, ineffable,
incomprehensible, unfathomable, blessed,
praiseworthy, glorious, exalted, sublime, most high,
gentle, lovable, delightful, and totally desirable above all else for ever.

My LORD Jesus Christ, Who because of Your love for men remain night and day in the Blessed Sacrament,
full of pity and of love, awaiting, calling and welcoming all who come to visit You, I believe that You are present here on the altar.
I adore You, and I thank You for all the graces You have bestowed on me, especially for having given me Yourself in this Sacrament,
for having given me Your most holy Mother Mary to plead for me, and for having called me to visit You in this church.

I now salute Your most loving Heart, and that for three ends:
first, in thanksgiving for this great gift;
secondly, to make amends to You for all the outrages committed against You in this Sacrament by Your enemies;
thirdly, I intend by this visit to adore You in all the places on earth in which You are present in the Blessed Sacrament
and in which You are least honored and most abandoned.

My Jesus, I love You with my whole heart. 
I am very sorry for having so many times offended Your infinite goodness.
With the help of Your grace, I purpose never to offend You again.
And now, unworthy though I am, I consecrate myself to You without reserve.
I renounce and give entirely to You my will, my affection, my desires and all that I possess.
For the future, dispose of me and all I have as You please.

All I ask of You is Your holy love, final perseverance and that I may carry out Your will perfectly.
I recommend to You the souls in Purgatory, 
especially those who had the greatest devotion to the Blessed Sacrament
and to the Blessed Virgin Mary. 
I also recommend to You all poor sinners.

Finally, my dear Savior, I unite all my desires with the desires of Your most loving Heart;
and I offer them, thus united, to the Eternal Father, and beseech Him,
in Your name and for love of You, to accept and grant them.

O salutaris Hostia,
Quae caeli pandis ostium: 
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.
Uni trinoque Domino 
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino 
Nobis donet in patria.

O saving Victim, opening wide,
The gate of heaven to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.
To Thy great name by endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, one in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen

Tantum ergo Sacramentum 
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.
Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio. Amen.

Down in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail,
Lo! o’er ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.
To the everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor blessing,
Might and endless majesty. Amen.
