Impóne, Dómine, cápiti meo gáleam salútis,
Ad expugnándos diabólicos incúrsus.
Place, O Lord, the helmet of salvation upon my head,
That I may overcome the assaults of the devil.
Cleanse me, O Lord, and purify my heart,
That being made white in the Blood of the Lamb,
I may have the fruition of everlasting joys.
Gird me, O Lord, with the girdle of purity
And extinguish in my loins the desire of lust:
So that the virtue of continence and chastity may ever abide within me.
May I be worthy, O Lord, so to bear the maniple of tears and sorrow:
That with joy I may receive the reward of my labor.
