Prayer to Our Lord on the Cross for a Happy Hour of Death

Let us pray daily to our Crucified Jesus that we may have a graceful death and gain eternal life.

O My Crucified Jesus, mercifully accept the prayer which I now make to Thee for help in the moment of my death, when at its approach all my senses shall fail me.
When, therefore, O sweetest Jesus, my weary and downcast eyes can no longer look up to Thee, be mindful of the loving gaze which I now turn on Thee, and have mercy on me.
When my parched lips can no longer kiss thy most Sacred Wounds remember then those kisses which now I imprint on Thee, and have mercy on me.
When my cold hands can no longer embrace thy Cross, forget not the affection with which I embrace it now, and have mercy on me.
And when, at length, my swollen and lifeless tongue can no longer speak, remember that I called upon thee now.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, to Thee do I commend my soul.
