My Precious Savior

My precious Savior, let me ask, now that you have been nailed to the Cross and have said yourself: It is finished, am I made free from death? Can I, through your pain and death inherit the kingdom of heaven? Has the redemption of the whole world arrived? You cannot say a single thing out of pain; yet your bow your head and say silently: yes.

Jesus, you were were dead, live now unendingly, in the last pangs of death I will turn nowhere else but to you, who has absolved me, O beloved Lord! Only give me what you earned, more I do not desire!

St. John's Passion
