Break through these deadly clouds of selfish darkness,
and bring anew Your Glorious Light
into my stormy world rained now by seven sins!
And in Your Holy Majesty purge out vile Pride!
Evict the wolf of Envy eating at every vital virtue.
Restore, oh Righteous One,
the Purity of Godly penance.
Let confession’s sweet release flow cleansing Sunlight
into this troubled soul.
Break through, Mighty Sun of Heaven!
Sear away Gluttonous Appetite
that rules in sloven lordship
over this stale realm of pleasure.
Let Lust no more accede the throne!
Claim here Your Rightful Home!
Break every bond of Anger’s passion.
Repeal the time dread ire has stolen,
and with sweet Holy Spirit Wind
breathe Peace in every corner of my soul!
Break the monstrous Greed that feeds a miser’s weakness!
Bring in the Sunlight of Your Generous Joy,
and break again Sloth’s bent to numbing sleep.
Arouse my spirit to Your Cleansing Ray,
the Son of God’s Pure Presence in each Day!
