O sweet and gentle Lady, Immaculate Mother of God,
we choose thee this day as the Mistress and Lady of this house.
Guard it, dear Mother from pestilence, fire, lightning and tempest,
from schisms and heresies, and from the malice of enemies.
Protect its inmates, sweet Mother, watch over their going out
and their coming in and preserve them from sudden death.
Keep from us all sin and harm and pray to God for us that we may
live in His service and depart this life in His grace.
