Prayer before the Crucifix

Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I kneel and, with burning soul, pray and beseech You 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, 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"
