This prayer was written by an Anglican priest, Fr. Henry Albert Wilson, Vicar of St. Augustine's, Haggerston, from 1925 to 1954.
Jesus, thou art my only need,
Without thee I am poor indeed:
So let me never lose thee.
Without thee I cannot be good,
Or ever do the things I should:
So, Jesus, never leave me.
Holy Mary, be a Mother to me;
Saint Joseph and all the Saints, pray for me;
My Guardian Angel, watch over me to keep me from all sin;
Jesus have mercy on me;
Mary, pray for me.
May the souls of the faithful, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Fr. H. A. Wilson
