which I bring before Thee;
the perils of Thy servants;
the sorrowful sighing of prisoners;
the miseries of widows and orphans,
and all that are desolate and bereaved;
the necessities of strangers and travellers;
the helplessness and sadness of the weak and sickly;
the depressions of the languishing;
the weakness of the aged and of children;
the trials and aspirations of young men;
and the vows

Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
