A Version of the Prayer of St. Richard of Chichester

THANKS be to thee, O Lord Jesus Christ, 
For all the cruel pains and insults Thou hast borne for me; 
For all the many blessings Thou hast won for me. 
O Holy Jesus, 
most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother, 
May I know thee more clearly, 
Love thee more dearly, 
And follow thee more nearly 
day by day.
