1 Holy Jesus, by Thy Passion,
By the woes which none can share,
Borne in more than kingly fashion,
By Thy love beyond compare:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.

2 By the treachery and trial,
By the blows and sore distress,
By desertion and denial,
By Thine awful loneliness:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.

3 By Thy look so sweet and lowly,
While they smote Thee on the face,
By Thy patience, calm and holy,
In the midst of keen disgrace:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.

4 By the hour of condemnation,
By the blood which trickled down,
When for us and our salvation
Thou didst wear the robe and crown:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.

5 By the path of sorrows dreary,
By the cross, Thy dreadful load,
By the pain, when, faint and wear.
thou didst sink, upon the road:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.

6 By the spirit which could render
Love for hate and good for ill,
By the mercy, sweet and tender,
Poured upon Thy murderers still:
Crucified, I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.
