Great model for God-loving boys
and cherished pupil of the famous Don Bosco,
who died prematurely, humanly speaking,
but you had already attained mature spiritual wisdom.
Your kindness won you many friends
but your love above all sought the Master
who is present in our tabernacles.
His praises you Eucharistically sang.
Make choir boys be singers like you
for the love of Jesus,
our most loving Master.
