From VADEMECUM, Collection of SVD Prayers
Lord, you indeed possessed me
From the beginning of my days.
Before you formed me in the womb,
You knew me, cherished me,
chose me to be your very own.
Thank you for my parents, relatives, friends, teachers, and elders,
who have shaped me to be what I am today with your help.
For the goodness and love that surrounds me
As long as I shall live,
I give you thanks and praise you,
Loving Father, tender Mother,
Through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.
