Aspirations for the Dying

(To be said with the person dying.)

Good Jesus, give me a deep love for You, that nothing may be too hard for me to bear from You.

You know Lord, that I am all weakness; teach me to bear my cross.  Bear it for me, bear it in me.

O Good Jesus, my God and my All, keep me ever near You, let nothing for a moment separate me from You.

Good Jesus, to You I flee; hide me in Your sacred side.

O Good Jesus, shelter me from the evil one, shed Your dew upon me to calm my soul, and dwell in me fully, that I may wholly love You.

Good Jesus, Who has borne so patiently with me; make me wholly patient for love of You.

Good Jesus, lead me that I may follow You; hold me that I may cling fast to You; teach me, that I may choose you alone; keep me that I may be Yours for ever.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I give you my heart, and my soul.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, may I breathe forth my soul in peace with you.

Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

O Lord Jesus Christ, receive my spirit.

Holy Mary, pray for me.

O Mary, mother of grace, mother of mercy, do thou protect me from the enemy, and receive me at the hour of death.

St. Joseph, pray for me.

St. Joseph, with the Blessed Virgin, thy Spouse, open to me the bosom of divine mercy.

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.
