Take, Lord, Receive: Prayers and Songs That Inspire

There are many ways to pray and praise...

For the AGSB MBA student, what can be better than a prayer by St. Ignatius of Loyola with music and lyrics and visuals...

What's the difference vs. this version? Compare with this? This is the version linked to the Ignatian site... Here's the original prayer...


St. Ignatius of Loyola

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.

Here's another classic Jesuit prayer..

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O Good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds hide me.
Permit me not to be separated from you.
From the wicked foe, defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
and bid me come to you
That with your saints I may praise you
For ever and ever. Amen.
Anima Christi with music, lyrics and visuals... where else? but in youtube again!
