O God, who for the redemption of the
world didst will to be born amongst men, to
be circumcised, to be rejected by the Jews,
to be betrayed by the traitor Judas with a
kiss, to be bound with cords, to be led to
slaughter as an innocent lamb, to be
shamelessly exposed to the gaze of Annas,
Caiphas, Pilate and Herod, to be accused by
false witnesses, to be tormented by scourges
and insults, defiled with spitting, crowned
with thorns, smitten with blows, struck with
a reed, blindfolded, stripped of Thy
garments, fastened to the Cross with nails,
lifted on the Cross, reckoned among
thieves, given gall and vinegar to drink and
wounded with a spear; do Thou, O Lord, by
these Thy most holy sufferings, upon which
I unworthily meditate, and by Thy Holy
Cross and death deliver me from the pains
of hell, and vouchsafe to bring me where
Thou didst bring the penitent thief who was
crucified with Thee, Who with the Father
and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest, one
God, world without end. Amen. Our
Father, Hail Mary, Glory be (five times).
