Holy Almighty God,I, a poor sinner have now arisen.  On the sacred cross, You, the real and patient lamb of sacrifice, did endure for me the most painful death and did redeem me with Your crimson blood from all my sins and from death, satan and hell.  O Lord 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, In the Name of our most faithful Savior, Jesus Christ, my only comfort, hope and life. Amen.
