thou who desirest so much to see Jesus loved,
if thou love me,
this is the favour which I ask of thee,
to obtain for me a great love of Jesus Christ.
Thou obtainest from Thy Son
whatever pleases thee;
pray, then, for me,
and console me.
Obtain for me a great love towards thee,
who, of all creatures,
art the most loving and beloved of God.
And through that grief
which thou didst suffer on Calvary,
when thou beheldest Jesus expire on the Cross,
obtain for me a happy death,
that by loving Jesus and thee,
I may come to love thee forever in heaven.
