We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
He was pierced for our offences, crushed for our sins. Upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by his stripes we were healed. We had all gone astray like sheep, each following his own way. But the Lord laid upon him the guilt of us all. Though he was harshly treated, he submitted, and opened not his mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearers, he was silent and opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 52:5-7)
Our Father.., Hail Mary.., Glory Be..
Have mercy on us, O Lord.
Have mercy on us.
Holy Mother, pierce me through!
In my heart, each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.
For the sins of his own nation,
She saw him hang in desolation,
Till his spirit forth he sent.
