Prayer Before a Crucifix

Prayer Before a Crucifix
Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I humbly kneel and with burning soul pray and beg You to fix deep in my heart lively virtues 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, Your five most precious wounds, pondering over them within me and calling to mind the words which David, Your prophet, said of You, my Jesus:
"They have pierced my hands and my feet, they have numbered all my bones."
