Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the malignant enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That with thy Saints I may praise Thee
Forever and ever

Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
Corpus Christi, salva me.
Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.
Passio Christi, conforta me.
O bone Jesu, exaudi me.
Intra tua vulnera absconde me.
Ne permittas me separari a te.
Ab hoste maligno defende me.
In hora mortis meae voca me.
Et iube me venire ad te,
Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te.
In saecula saeculorum.

Music and choral arraignment Monsignor Marco Frisina, a priest whose musical accomplishments are awe inspiring.  On his website investigate his film scores.  All glory goes to God.  This is from his website: Monsignor Frisna’s biblically and liturgically inspired music is melodious, worthwhile and easily sung, open to interpretation either by the entire congregation or a full choir. His work reflects his belief that liturgical melodies are there to assist prayer….function is to elevate the spirit….express the religious value of the text, which in Catholic tradition always has priority over the music and, in a sense, the soul. His diverse repertoire also includes oratorios, film scores, opera and musical theater and spans both religious and secular themes.
