Recordemos que estamos en la presencia de Dios
En el nombre del Padre y del Hijo y del Espiritu Santo
Ven, nuevo dia, iluminame con tu luz.
Llename de gracia y enseñame tu cruz.
Dame poder para seguir en tu camino,
sabiduria para apreciar las enseñansas,
las que me dan mis maestros, padres, y tu.
Te pido por este dia que me protejas
para que siga aprendiendo y acercandome a ti
San Juan Bautista De La Salle…Ruega por nosotros
Viva Jesus en nuestros corazones…Por siempre!
Come, new day, enlighten me with your light.
Fill me with grace and show me your cross.
Give me power to continue on your path.
Wisdom to appreciate the teachings
The ones my teachers, parents, and you give me.
I ask you for this day to protect me
To continue learning and getting close to you.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
