VII. Jesus falls for the second time

V. We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
R. Because by your holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.

Lord Yahweh has gven me a disciples tongue,
for me to know how to give a word of comfort to the weary.
Morning by morning he makes my ear alert
to listen like a disciple.
Lord Yahweh has opened my ear
and I have not resisted
I have not turned away.
I have offered my back to those who struck me,
my cheeks to those who plucked my beard;
I have not turned my face away
from insult and spitting........
Which of you walks in darkness
and sees no light?
Let him trust in the name of Yahweh
and lean on his God.

Isaiah 50: 4 - 6, 10
