Prayer Before A Crucifix

Behold, O good and most sweet Jesus,
I fall upon my knees before Thee,
and with most fervent desire beg and beseech Thee
that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart
a lively sense of faith, hope and charity,
true repentance for my sins,
and a firm resolve to make amends.

And with deep affection and grief,
I reflect upon Thy five wounds,
having before my eyes
that which Thy prophet David spoke about Thee,
o good Jesus:
"They have pierced my hands and feet,
they have counted all my bones."
