Send Thy light and brilliancy.

Of the soul the sweetest Guest,
Come in toil refreshingly.

Shine within the inmost breast
Of Thy faithful company.

Stubborn necks to Jesus bow,
Draw the wanderer tenderly.

In Thy power to guard and guide,
With Thy Sevenfold Mystery.

Here Thy grace and virtue send;
Grant Salvation to the end,
And in Heaven felicity.
