O most loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God,
I, a miserable sinner, salute and worship
the most sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder
on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy cross,
which so tore Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy Bones
as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater
than any other wound of Thy most blessed Body.
I adore Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful;
I praise and glorify Thee, and give Thee thanks
for this most sacred and painful Wound,
beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain,
and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy cross,
to be merciful to me, a sinner,
to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins,
and to lead me on toward heaven
along the Way of the Cross.
