Prayer before a Crucifix

Look down upon me good and gentle Jesus as before Thy sacred Cross I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope, and Charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment; whilst I contemplate, with great love and tender pity, Thy five sacred wounds, and as I meditate upon them, I call to mind the words which David, Thy prophet, spoke concerning Thee: “They pierced My hands and My feet, they numbered all My bones.

Prayer Before a Crucifix

Boy at the cross
Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus,
while before Thy face I humbly kneel and,
with burning soul, pray and beseech Thee to
fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of
faith, hope and charity; true contrition for
my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment,
while I contemplate, with great love and tender
pity, Thy five most precious wounds,
pondering over them within me and calling
to mind the words which David, Thy
prophet, said to Thee, my Jesus:
"They have pierced My hands and My feet,
they have numbered all My bones." (Psalm 21:17-18)

Pray: Our Father
Pray: Hail Mary
Pray: Glory Be
for the Holy Father's intentions
Amen.
