Act of Hope

O Lord God, I hope by your grace
for the pardon of all my sins
and after life here
to gain eternal happiness
because you have promised it
who are infinitely powerful, faithful, kind, and merciful.
In this hope I intend to live and die. Amen.

Actus Spei

Dómine Deus, spero per grátiam tuam
remissiónem ómnium peccatórum,
et post hanc vitam
ætérnam felicitátem me esse consecutúrum:
quia tu promisísti,
qui es infiníte potens, fidélis, benígnus, et miséricors.
In hac spe vívere et mori státuo. Amen.
