1. O Holy, Blessed Trinity, Divine, Essential Unity, God Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Be Thou this day my Guide and Host.
2. My soul and body keep from harm, O'er all I have extend Thine arm, That Satan may not cause distress Nor bring me shame or wretchedness.
3. The Father's might shield me this day, The Son's pure wisdom cheer my way, The Holy Spirit's light divine Illume my heart's benighted shrine.
4. My Maker, strengthen Thou my heart, O my Redeemer, help impart, Blest Comforter, keep at my side That faith and love in me abide.
5. Lord, bless and keep Thou me as Thine; Lord, make Thy face upon me shine; Lord, lift Thy countenance on me And give me peace— sweet peace, from Thee.
