His Hour: A Holy Hour of Reparation, Page 6
To Our Lord On the Cross
My Crucified Jesus, mercifully accept the prayer which I now make to Thee
for help in the moment of my death, when at its approach all my senses shall fail me.
When, therefore, O sweetest Jesus, my weary and downcast eyes can no longer look up to Thee,
be mindful of the loving gaze which I now turn on Thee, and have mercy on me.
When my parched lips can no longer kiss Thy most sacred wounds, remember
then those kisses which now I imprint on Thee, and have mercy on me.
When my cold hands can no longer embrace Thy Cross, forget
not the affection with which I embrace it now, and have mercy on me.
And when, at length, my swollen and lifeless tongue can no longer speak, remember
that I called upon Thee now.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph, to Thee I commend my soul. Amen.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ
to heal the wounds of our souls.
