Saint Bernard of Clairvaux Chaplet Prayers
On the Crucifix Pray
Jesus, the very thought of Thee with sweetness fills the breast, but sweeter for Thy face to see, and in Thy presence rest. Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, nor can the memory find a sweeter sound than Thy blessed name, O Savior of mankind. O hope of every contrite heart; O joy of all the meek, to those who fall, how kind Thou art; how good to those who seek! O Jesus, light of all below, Thou fount of living fire; Surpassing all the joys we know, and all we can desire. Abide with us, and let Thy light shine, Lord, on every heart; Dispel the darkness of our night and joy to all impart.
On each of the first set three beads pray the Our Father
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
On each of the second set three beads pray the Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
On each of third set of three beads pray the Glory Be
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.
On the Medal Pray
Heavenly Father, Saint Bernard was filled with zeal for Your house and was a radiant light in Your church. By his prayers may we be filled with his spirit of zeal and walk always as children of light. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of The Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
