My crucified Lord Jesus Christ, who is now arisen.
On the sacred cross, You, the real and patient lamb of sacrifice, endured for me the most painful death and You redeemed me with Your crimson blood from all my sins, from death, Satan and hell: govern my heart by Your Holy Spirit, refresh it with the heavenly dew of Your grace, keep me this day with Your divine love, and hide me, body and soul, in Your holy wounds; cleanse me from all my sins, preserve me in all good works, and guide me out of this veil of tears into Your eternal joy and glory, O most faithful Savior, Jesus Christ, my only comfort, hope and life. Amen
