O most merciful Jesus,
Lover of souls,
I beseech Thee,
by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,
and by the sorrows of Thine Immaculate Mother,
wash clean in the Thy Blood
the sinners of the whole world
who are to die this day.
Remember most especially the soul
I spiritually adopt
with the intention
of entrusting him or her to Thy
I beseech Thee for the grace
to move this sinner,
who is in danger of going to Hell, to repent.
I ask this because of my trust in Thy great mercy.
If it should please Thy Majesty to send me a suffering
in exchange for the grace
I ask for this soul,
then, it, too, shall please me very much,
and I thank Thee, Most Sweet Jesus,
Shepherd and Lover of Souls;
I thank Thee for this opportunity to give mercy
in thanksgiving for all the mercies
Thou hast shown me.
Heart of Jesus, once in agony,
have mercy on the dying.
