Virgin Most Prudent, I have tasted sin’s
Seductive sugar, which suddenly turns sour;
Pray that the flaming fire of faith may be
Infused deep within my helpless heart.
Show me how to imitate you by immersing
Myself in God’s grand and glorious love;
May the delicate sound of your voice
Sweeten the dry depths of my solitary soul.
Teach my heart to thrill in thanksgiving
And not take things for granted;
I especially praise the good God for His gift of
You, you who hold me in your affectionate arms.
The hounds of hell have been unleashed,
So please be my vigilant protectress;
One word from the Holy One and you will
Slay them with the sharp sword of the Spirit.
