Let Thy Heavenly grace,
we beseech Thee, O Lord,
enrich Thy Church,
which Thou hast vouchsafed
to make illustrious by the glorious merits
and example of blessed Francis, Thy Confessor.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee
in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God,
world without end.
