We adore Thee O Christ and we bless Thee because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world
Behold the Cross of the Lord, begone ye evil powers, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David has conquered. Alleluia.

LET US PRAY
O God, Who for the redemption of the world was pleased to be born in a stable and to die upon a cross, O Lord Jesus Christ by Thy holy sufferings which we Thy unworthy servants
call to mind; by Thy Holy Cross and by Thy death deliver us from the pains of Hell and vouchsafe to conduct us where Thou did conduct the good thief who was crucified with Thee,
Who lives and reigns eternally in Heaven. Amen

Sweet the wood, sweet the nails, sweet the Burden which thou bearest, for thou alone 0 Holy Cross was worthy to bear the King and Lord of Heaven. Amen
