An Act of Commendation

O my Crucified Saviour, O Blessed Jesus, 
My only hope and refuge, 
Bathe me with thy Blood, 
Clothe me with thy merit, 
Bless me with thy grace. 
By all that which is near and dear unto Thee, 
In heaven and in earth, 
O blessed Jesus Christ, bestow on me 
A happy departure of my soul out of this world; 
With thy Holy Sacrament to strengthen me, 
With thy Holy Mother to pray for me, 
With thy holy angels to guard and protect me, 
And thyself, O dear Jesus, to comfort me,
And to receive me into life everlasting.
