Jesus, Who in Thy bitter Passion,
didst become the reproach of men
and the Man of Sorrows,
I venerate Thy Holy Face
on which shone the beauty and gentleness of Divinity.
In those disfigured features,
I recognize Thine infinite Love,
and I long to love Thee,
and make Thee loved.
May I behold Thy Glorious Face in Heaven.
