we offer Thee the precious Blood of Jesus,
shed for us through exceeding love,
and with exceeding pain
from the wound of His right
through the merits and virtues of which,
we beseech Thy divine Majesty
to bestow on us Thy sacred benediction,
that by its efficacy
we may be protected from our enemies,
and delivered from every evil.
For this purpose we say:
May the blessing
of Almighty God,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
descend upon us,
and remain always with us.
(Then say Our Father..., Hail Mary..., and Glory
be to the Father.... once, to the Most Adorable Trinity, in thanksgiving for all the blessings and benefits we receive.)
