O Lord Jesus Christ, innocent and spotless Lamb of God, You have suffered the shameful death on the cross for us, and would have us always remember this. We again, from our inmost hearts, thank, praise, and magnify You, that You have redeemed us poor sinners by the price of Your holy sufferings and death, and were obedient to Your heavenly Father even to the death of the cross. You also shed Your life for us, that we might be safe from eternal death. O faithful Savior, how much You have suffered for us! What unspeakable torture and pain You endured in the body and soul, that we might be exempt from them forever. O Lord Jesus, patient lamb of God, You take away the sins of the whole world, we confess that we have caused You all this labor and Your death with our numerous and grievous sins. Be gracious and merciful to us, and do not let Your bitter and painful sufferings and death be in vain for us. Grant us grace that we may be mindful of this all our days, heartily praise and thank You for the same, and that by contemplating Your pains and crucifixion we may crucify and mortify all fleshly lusts and evil desires of our corrupt flesh. And because You have suffered for us, grant that we take up our cross, which we daily and richly deserve with our sins, and follow after You. For You name’s sake, may we patiently endure all things, and in the blessed hereafter be and forever remain with You and all Your elect in heavenly joy and bliss. Amen.
