As I kneel before Thee on the Cross, most loving Savior of my soul

My conscience reproaches me with having nailed Thee to that cross with these hands of mine, as often as I have fallen into mortal sin, wearying Thee with my base ingratitude. My God, my chief and perfect good, worthy of all my love, because Thou hast loaded me with blessings; I cannot now undo my misdeeds, as I would most willingly; but I loathe tIhem, grieving sincerely for having offended Thee, Who art infinite goodness.  And now, kneeling at Thy feet, I try, at least, to compassionate Thee, to give Thee thanks, to ask Thee pardon and contrition; wherefore with my heart and lips, I say

To The Wound of the Left Foot

Holy Wound of the left foot of my Jesus, I adore thee;

I compassionate Thee, O Jesus, for the most bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.  I thank Thee for the love whereby Thou labored to overtake me on the way to ruin, and didst bleed amid the thorns and brambles of my sins. I offer to the Eternal Father the pain and love of Thy most holy humanity, in atonement for my sins, all of which I detest with sincere and bitter contrition. 

To The Wound of the Right Foot

Holy Wound of the right foot of my Jesus, I adore thee;

I compassionate Thee, O Jesus, for the most bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.  I thank Thee for that love which pierced Thee with such torture and shedding of blood, in order to punish my wanderings and the guilty pleasures I have granted to my unbridled passions.  I offer the Eternal Father all the pain and love of Thy most holy humanity, and I pray Thee for grace to weep over my sins with hot tears, and to enable me to persevere in the good which I have begun, without ever swerving again from my obedience to the divine commands. 

To The Wound of the Left Hand

Holy Wound of the left hand of my Jesus, I adore thee;

I compassionate Thee, O Jesus, for the most bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.  I thank Thee for having in Thy love spared me the scourges and eternal damnation which my sins have merited.  I offer to the Eternal Father the pain and love of Thy most holy humanity: and I pray Thee to teach me how to turn to good account my span of life, and bring forth in it worthy fruits of penance, and to disarm the justice of God, which I have provoked.

To The Wound of the Right Hand

Holy Wound of the right hand of my Jesus, I adore thee;

I compassionate Thee, O Jesus, for the most bitter pain which Thou didst suffer.  I thank Thee for Thy graces lavished on me with such love, in spite of all my most perverse obstinacy.  I offer to the Eternal Father all the pain and love of Thy most holy humanity; and I pray Thee to change my heart and its affections, and make me do all my actions in accordance with the will of God.

To The Wound of the Sacred Side

Holy Wound in the side of my Jesus, I adore thee;

I compassionate Thee, O Jesus, for the cruel insult Thou didst suffer.  I thank Thee, my Jesus, for the love which suffered Thy side and Heart to be pierced, so that the last drops of blood and water might issue forth, making my redemption to overflow.  I offer to the Eternal Father this outrage, and the love of Thy most holy humanity, that my soul may enter once for all into that most loving Heart, eager and ready to receive the greatest sinners, and never more depart.

O God, Who by the Passion of Thine only begotten Son, and by the shedding of His Precious Blood through His five Wounds, didst restore human nature when it was lost by sin; grant to us, we beseech Thee, (Mention Your Intentions)

And that we who venerate on earth the Wounds suffered by Him, may be found worthy to obtain in heaven the fruits of that same Most Precious Blood.  Through the same Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Say the Glory Be Five Times in Honor of the Five Wounds

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end.  Amen.
