Good Friday Prayer Of Love For The Crucified Lord
It is not the heavenly reward You have promised
Which impels me to love You;
Neither is it the threat of hell
That keeps me from offending You.
It is You O Lord,
It is the sight of You
Affixed to the Cross and suffering insults;
It is the sight of Your broken body,
As well as Your pains and Your death.
There is nothing You can give me
To make me love You.
For even if there were no heaven and no hell
I would still love you as I do!
