Behold me, my beloved Jesus,
weighed down under the burden
of my trials and sufferings,
I cast myself at Your feet, that You may renew
my strength and my courage,
while I rest here in Your Presence.
Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,
for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;
only Your love can help me bear my cross;
only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight.
O Divine King, Jesus,
whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted,
I wish to live in You; suffer and die in You.
During my life be to me my model and my support;
At the hour of my death, be my hope and my refuge.
