To Our Lord and the Saints

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
