Prayer Before a Crucifix
At The Sight of A Crucifix
Lord Jesus, by that bitterness thou sufferedst for me on the cross, chiefly when thy blessed soul was separated from thy body, have mercy on my soul, now and at its departure from this world, that it may be admitted to life everlasting.
To what excess, Oh my Savior, hast thou loved me? Oh Jesus, crucified for my salvation, save me.
Oh Savior of mankind, have mercy on all sinners, and according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out their iniquity.
I thank thee, Oh my Jesus, for all thy love and mercy to me, and I am sorry for all my ingratitude to thee.
