Every day of my life
belongs to Thee,
O my God,
and every action of my life
should be performed with the pure intention
of honouring Thee alone.
From this moment I offer them
to Thy Sacred Heart,
and by this offering,
I consecrate them without reserve to Thy glory.
What a motive for performing all my actions
with all possible perfection!
Do not permit them,
O my divine Saviour,
to be sullied by any motives
unworthy of Thy Sacred Heart.
I renounce all that could lessen
of my offering.
I renounce all vanity,
self-love and human respect.
Grant, O my God,
that I may begin,
continue and end this day in Thy grace,
and solely from the pure motive
and pleasing and honouring Thee.
