V: We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You
R: Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.
V: Consider that, our Lord having expired, two of His disciples, Joseph and Nicodemus, took Him down from the cross, and placed Him in the arms of His afflicted Mother, who received Him with unutterable tenderness, and pressed Him to her bosom.
All: O Mother of Sorrow, for the love of this Son, accept me for thy servant and pray to Him for me. And Thou, my Redeemer, since Thou hast died for me, permit me to love Thee; for I wish but Thee and nothing more.
I love Thee my Jesus and I repent of ever having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou wilt.
Prayers: Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…
V: Lord Jesus Crucified R: Have Mercy on us.
Hymn: Stabat Mater Stanza
All: Sing or Say:
Let me mingle tears with thee,
mourning Him Who mourned for me,
all the days that I may live.
V: Have Mercy on Us, O Lord. R: Have Mercy on Us.
