Anima Christi

Anima Christi Soul of Christ, sanctify me Body of Christ, save me Water from the side of Christ, wash me Passion

of Christ, give me strength Hear me Jesus, hide me in Thy wounds That I may never leave Thy side From all the evil that surrounds me, defend me And when the call of death arrives, bid me come to Thee That I may praise Thee with Thy saints forever

Based on one of St. Ignatius' favorite prayers, a prayer that Jandi learned in preparation for First Communion in second grade at the Ateneo Grade School. However, when he memorized the prayer as he was growing up, he inadvertently missed one line from the original prayer: Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Thus when he set the prayer to music in his sophomore year in college, that one line was not included. Efforts were made by others, including Jandi to insert that one line in accordance with tradition. But somehow, they all proved futile. This is how the prayer has been sung since
