We adore Thee, O Christ, and praise Thee:
R. Because by Thy holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world!
O MY Jesus! I can not be Thy friend and follower if I refuse to carry the cross, a dearly beloved cross! I embrace thee, I kiss thee, I joyfully accept thee from the hands of my God. Far be it from me to glory in anything, save in the cross of my Redeemer. "By it the world shall be crucified to me and I to the world, that I may be Thine, O Jesus, forever.
Our Father, etc.; Hail Mary, etc.
V. Lord Jesus, crucified:
R. Have mercy on us!
