Prayer of the Holy Cross (found in Jesus' sepulchre)

Oh! Lord Almighty You have suffered death at the cross for our sins.
Oh! Holy Cross of Jesus be my true light.
Oh! Holy Cross of Jesus fill my soul with good thoughts.
Oh! Holy Cross safely guard me against unholy thoughts and wordly dangers that I may worship the Holy Cross of Jesus of Nazareth crucified have pity on me.
Oh! Holy Cross of Jesus be my hope.
Oh! Holy Cross have mercy on me forever and ever. Amen.
In honor of the precious Blood of Jesus and His fearful death and resurrection and His glorification, which leads to everlasting life.
As true as Jesus was born at Christmas and crucified on Good Friday,
As true as Saint Joseph and Nicodemus took Jesus down from the cross,
As true as Jesus ascended into heaven, may He preserve me from my enemies both visible and invisible forever and ever. Amen.
Lord Almighty, unto your hand I give my soul and my body.
Oh! Lord Jesus grant me strength to bear my cross as yourself. Teach me to bear it with great humility that the Virgin may fill me with the Holy Spirit. Preserve my soul and lead it to life everlasting. AMEN
