although You are God, You came among men,
sharing our human nature.
You met people overwhelmed by illnesses and sins:
You Knew what suffering means.
You accepted to die a cruel and violent death:
You understood what pain is.
We beg You, o Lord, give
strength to those who are weak;
peace to those who are upset;
courage to those who are worried;
quietness to those who are scared.
Give me, o Lord,
to know for certain that You are very close to me;
that You walk on my own path;
that You will neither abandon nor forget me.
