Grant Oh my God that my whole deportment may be such as becomes a spouse of Jesus Christ. Close my heart against the spirit of the world, and against every sentiment that would be, in the least, displeasing to thee. Teach me, thyself, what I ought to say; preserve me, I beseech thee, from offending thee by my words.
Oh my Jesus who vouchsafest to converse with men, during the mortal life; mercifully grant, that, in my communication with others, I may always be animated with dispositions similar to thine.
Oh, when shall I e so happy as to speak only for thee, of thee, or with thee my God?
