The Sign of the Cross

by Victor Hoagland, C.P.

I open my hand and touch my brow,
In the name of the Father
I say.

Come bless me, God,
come bless me,
bless me in every way.

Come bless what I see,
and bless what I hear,
and bless what I think and say.

Then I touch my heart with my hand,
and say

and of the Son
Bless me, Jesus, bless my heart
that I may love everyone.

I touch my shoulders
left and right,
and of the Holy Spirit
I say.

O God, thank you,
for all I have this day.

God's hand's in mine
as I bless myself,
God in heaven above,
and the Cross of Jesus
blesses me too,
the Cross of Jesus' love.
