Obsecro Te, Dulcissime Domine Iesu Christe (I Beseech Thee, Most Sweet Jesus Christ)

Obsecro te, dulcissime Domine Iesu Christe, ut passio tua sit mihi virtus, qua muniar, protegar, atque defendar. Vulnera tua sint mihi cibus potusque, quibus pascar inebrier atque delecter. Aspersio Sanguinis tui sit mihi ablutio omnium delictorum meorum. Mors tua sit mihi vita indeficiens, crux sit mihi gloria sempiterna. In his sit mihi refectio, exsultatio, sanitas et dulcedo cordis mei: Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

I beseech Thee, most sweet Lord Jesus Christ, that Thy Passion may be to me power by which I may be strengthened, protected and defended. May Thy wounds be to me food and drink by which I may be nourished, inebriated, and delighted. May the sprinkling of Thy Blood be to me an ablution for all my sins. May Thy death prove for me unfailing life, and may Thy Cross be to me eternal glory. In these be my refreshment, joy, health, and delight of my heart: Thou who livest and reignest forever. Amen.
