IX. Jesus falls for the third time
Illustration: Chris Snedeker
We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you
Because by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world
I am the man familiar with misery,
under the rod of his fury.
He has led and guided me into darkness, not light.
Against none but me does he turn his hand,
again and again, all day
Lamentations 3: 1 - 3
