Precious Blood of Jesus,
shed in the circumcision,
make me pure of mind, heart and body.
oozing from every pore of Jesus
in the Agony,
enable me to love God's holy will
flowing from the scourging at the pillar,
inspire me with a sorrow for my sins,
and a tolerance for suffering.
falling in profusion from the crown of thorns,
grant me a ready acceptance
shed profusely in the crucifixion of our Lord,
make me die entirely to self-love.
shed to the very last drop by the opening of Christ's Sacred Heart,
give me that generous love which sacrifices all for God.
sacred price of my redemption,
apply to me your infinite merits.
I adore you from the depths of my heart;
I invoke you ardently, for you are my salvation,
and by you I hope
to obtain the joys of heaven.
