Jesus Dies on the Cross
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider how thy Jesus, after three hours
of agony on the cross, consumed at length with anguish, abandons Himself
to the weight of His body, bows His head, and dies.
O my dying Jesus, I kiss devoutly the cross
on which Thou didst die for love of me. I have merited by my sins to die
a miserable death, but Thy death is my hope. Ah, by the merits of Thy
death, give me grace to die, embracing Thy feet and burning with love
of Thee. I commit my soul into Thy hands. I love Thee with my whole heart;
I repent of ever having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee
again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to
|Fac me tecum pie flere,
Donec ego vixero.
|Let me mingle tears with thee,
Mourning Him Who mourned for me,
All the days that I may live.
