PRAYER OF ST. AUGUSTINE TO OUR LORD IN HIS PASSION AND DEATH.

O most adorable Lord, who for the redemption of the world didst deign to be born, to be circumcised, to be rejected by the Jews, to be betrayed by Judas with a false kiss, to be bound with cords and chains, as an innocent lamb to be led to the slaughter; to be ignominiously exposed before Annas, Caiphas, Pilate, and Herod; to be accused by false witnesses, scourged, and shamefully loaded; to be defiled with spittle, crowned with thorns, beaten with blows, struck with a reed, buffeted in the face, despoiled of thy clothes, fastened with nails to a cross, and then raised upon it, and placed between two thieves; to be offered gall and vinegar to drink, and, last of all, to be pierced with a lance: do thou, O my Lord Jesus Christ, by the virtue of thy most holy sufferings, which thou didst so undeservedly undergo, for the merit and in memory of thy most holy death and cross, deliver me from the pains of hell; and deign to carry me, as thou didst the good thief who was crucified with thee, to the kingdom of thy Father, where thou reignest with Him and the Holy Spirit one God, world without end. Amen.
