Prayer Before a Crucifix
Look down upon me good and gentle Jesus as before Thy
sacred Cross I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and
beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of Faith,
Hope, and Charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm
purpose of amendment; whilst I contemplate, with great love
and tender pity, Thy five sacred wounds, and as I meditate
upon them, I call to mind the words which David, Thy prophet,
spoke concerning Thee:
“They pierced My hands and My feet, they numbered all My bones.” Amen.
