The Twelfth Station: Jesus dies on the Cross
We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee. Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold thy son!" Then he said to the disciple, "Behold thy mother!" And when Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished!" And then, crying with a loud voice, he said, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit." And he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
O God, who for our redemption didst give thy only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grand us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; who liveth and reighneth now and for ever. Amen.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
Clilmbing Calv' ry's rugged mountain
Stand we 'neath that precious fountain,
Flowing from Christ's wounded side
