Bless to me O God
My soul that comes from on high.
Bless to me O God
My body that is of earth.
Bless to me O God
Each thing my eye sees
Each sound my ear hears.

Each scent that goes to my nostrils
Each taste that goes to my lips
Each ray that guides my way.

Is to be... holy;

Cleanse me from within
And make me holy.
