Prayer to the Little Flower
Thérèse Prayer]

"Oh little
Thérèse of the Child Jesus, who during thy short life on earth became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death, and of wholehearted abandonment to God, now that thou rejoicest in the reward of Thy virtues, cast a glance of pity on me as I leave all things in thy hands. Make my troubles thy own --- speak a word for me to our Lady Immaculate, whose flower of special love thou wert --- to that Queen of Heaven 'who smiled on thee at the dawn of life.' Beg her as Queen of the Heart of Jesus to obtain for me by her powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently at this moment, and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen me during life, defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight on to a happy eternity."

Thérèse ---
May thy winning smile
Cheer us all the while.

Thérèse ---
May thy childlike trust
Show us too we must.

Thérèse ---
May thy little way
Guide us every day.

Little Thérèse ---
In thy loving prayer
May we ever share.

Little Thérèse ---
Lover of Mary mild
Keep up always as her child.

Little Thérèse ---
Simple as the dove,
Look down upon us from above.

Little Thérèse ---
Let thy holy power
Be with us every hour.

Little Thérèse ---
The fragrance of thy roses
A Heaven to us discloses.

Little Thérèse ---
May their fragrance sweet
Be with us till we meet.
And then when life is o'er ---
Oh, to see thee evermore!
