Prayer Before the Crucifix


Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I humbly kneel:

 and with burning soul I pray and beseech You to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of

Faith, Hope and Charity; true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment;

 while I call to mind with great love and tender pity Your five wounds, pondering upon them within me;

while I call to mind the words which David,

Your prophet said to You, my Jesus,

 "They have pierced My hands and My feet, they have numbered all My bones."
