O good and dearest Jesus,
I kneel before Your face.
With all my heart
I ask You
to place in my heart
more faith, hope and charity.
Give me a true sorrow for my sins
and a strong will to do better
With great sorrow and grief
I look upon your five wounds
and think about them.
Before my eyes are the words
that the prophet David said of You,
O good Jesus:
"They have pierced my hands and feet
They have numbered all my bones."

PRAYER BEFORE A CRUCIFIX # 4
(By Saint Francis of Assisi.)
Great and glorious God, my Lord Jesus Christ!
I implore Thee to enlighten me
and to disperse the darkness of my soul.
Give me true faith, firm hope, and perfect charity.
Grant me, O Lord, to know Thee so well
that in all things I may act by Thy light
and in accordance with Thy holy will.

Amen.
