The Holy Cross of God

The holy cross of God, as long and as broad

As the one upon which God suffered

His blessed, bitter tortures, bless me today and forever.

The three holy nails which were driven through

The holy hands and feet of Jesus Christ

Shall bless me today and forever.

The bitter crown of thorns which was forced upon

The holy head of Christ, shall bless me today and forever.

The spear by which the holy side of Jesus was opened,

Shall bless me today and forever.

The rosy blood protect me from all my enemies,

And from everything which night be injurious to my body

Or soul, or my worldly goods.

Bless me, oh ye five holy wounds, in order that all my enemies

May be driven away and bound,

While God has encompassed all Christendom.

In this shall assist me God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Amen. Thus must I, [name], be blessed as well and as valid

As the cup and the wine, and the true, living bread which

Jesus gave his disciples on the evening of Maunday Thursday.

All those that hate you must be silent before me;

Their hearts are dead in regard to me; and their tongues are

Mute, so that they are not at all able to inflict the least injury

Upon me, or my house, or my premises:

And likewise, all those who intend attacking and wounding me

With their arms and weapons shall be defenseless,

Weak and conquered before me.

In this shall assist me the holy power of God, which can make all arms or weapons of no avail. All this in the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
