O holy Guardian Angel,
my dear friend and solicitous guide on the dangerous way of life,
to thee be heartfelt thanks
for the numberless benefits
which have been granted me
through thy love and goodness
and for the powerful help by which thou hast preserved me
from so many dangers and temptations.
I beg of thee,
let me further experience thy love and thy care.
Avert from me all danger,
increase in me horror for sin
and love for all that is good.
Be a counselor and consoler to me
in all the affairs of my life,
and when my life
draws to a close,
conduct my soul
through the valley of death
into the kingdom of eternal peace,
so that in eternity
we may together praise God
and rejoice in His glory.
Through Jesus Christ
make me worthy of thy tender love,
thy celestial companionship
and thy never-failing protection!
