On the crucifix (or medal) pray
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ's side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
Before each bead between the crucifix (medal) and centerpiece pray
Jesus most meek, make my heart like unto Thine.
On the five beads between the crucifix (medal) and centerpiece pray
We adore Thee, O Jesus, who hast been afflicted in the Garden of Gethsemane and who still in or time art outraged in the Blessed Sacrament by the impious conduct of men. O most amiable Savior, we recognize that Thou alone art Holy, Thou alone art Lord, Thou alone art Most High.
On each of the remaining 33 beads pray
I adore Thee, O most Sacred Heart of Jesus! Inflame my heart with the Divine Love with which Thine own is all on fire!
At the end of the 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.
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.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who by an ineffable miracle of love has deigned to give Thy heart to men to serve as their nourishment, in order thereby to gain their hearts, graciously hear our humble prayers, and pardon us for the sins of which we confess ourselves guilty before Thee. Cast an eye of compassion and mercy upon those towards whom Thou dost condescend to direct the affections of Thine amiable Heart. And since we desire to honor Thee in the adorable Mystery of the Altar to the utmost of our power and to render Thee most pleasing homage, and for that intention, weep for and detest from the bottom of our hearts all the outrages, contempt, mockery, sacrileges, and other acts of impiety which ungrateful men in every part of the world have committed against Thee, enkindle therefore in our hearts this divine love with which Thine own is inflamed, and inspire us with sentiments like unto Thine, in order that we may be able worthily to praise for all eternity the love with which this Sacred Heart burns for us. This our prayer to Thee who livest and reignest with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
