Beneath Your Cross, I Adore You

'O Christ Jesus, prostrate beneath Your cross, I adore You.  Power of God, You show Yourself overwhelmed with weakness so as to teach us humility and confound our pride.  O High Priest, full of holiness, Who passed through our trials in order to be like unto us and to have compassion on our infirmities, do not leave me to myself, for I am but frailty.  May Your power dwell in me, so that I may not fall into evil.'           C.  Marmion
