Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ,
that the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Thy Mother,
whose most holy soul was transfixed with the sword of sorrow
in the hour of Thy Own Passion,
may intercede for us before the throne of Mercy,
now and at the hour of our death.
Imprint, O Lady, thy wounds upon my heart,
that I may read therein sorrow and love;
sorrow, to endure every sorrow for thee;
love, to despise every love for thee.
