O most Faithful companion,
appointed by God
to be my guide and protector,
and who art ever at my side,
what thanks can I offer thee for thy faithfulness and love,
and for all the benefits
which thou hast conferred upon me?
Thou watchest over me in sleep;
thou consolest me when I am sad;
thou liftest me up when I fall;
thou avertest the dangers that threaten me;
thou preparest me for the future;
thou withdrawest me from evil
and excitest me to good;
thou exhortest me to penance
when I yield to temptation;
and reconcilest me to my offended God.
Long since should I have been cast into hell,
unless by thy prayers
thou hadst averted from me the anger
Leave me not, then, I entreat thee;
but still comfort me in adversity,
restrain me in prosperity,
defend me in danger,
assist me in temptations,
lest at any time
I fall a victim to them.
Offer to God
and all my religious exercises,
and obtain for me the great gift of final perseverance,
and the grace
to die in the friendship of my Creator,
and so to enter into life
