Advent Prayer by Saint Gertrude


Hail Most Loving Little Jesus
Hail Most Gracious Mother of Mercy


Hail Most Loving Little Jesus,
In Preparation for Christmas Day


Hail, most loving little Jesus, sweetest love, far above all created love! I greet Thee, and in the desires of all Christendom I embrace Thee.


Hail, most charming little Jesus, noble Child of Nazareth, full rose of Jericho, blooming flower from Heaven! Draw our hearts to Thyself and refresh them with Thy sweetness.


Hail, most lovable little Jesus, living Bread ot Bethlehem, innocent Lamb of Jerusalem, newly-born King of Judea! Receive us into the number of Thy chosen servants.


Hail, most beautiful little Jesus, watchful Shepherd of the Heavenly sheep, beloved fellow-Brother of all the children of men, delicate flower planted by the Holy Spirit in the virgin heart of Mary, bright daybreak rising out of the dark night to the joy of the whole earth! Drive away from us the darkness of sin.


Glory and praise be to Thee, tender, sweet little Jesus! From the depths of my heart I pray and adore Thee because for the love of me and of all mankind Thou wert willing to lie in the manger and to suffer such great poverty and misery. I thank and adore Thy tender limbs and Thy tender hands and feet, and I praise the inexpressible love which drew Thee forth from the bosom of the Heavenly Father, down to a poor and miserable stable.


Glory and praise be to Thee, noble little Jesus! I greet and praise Thee with the same fervent love with which Thy mother loved and praised Thee so intensely.


Glory and praise be to Thee, most beloved little Jesus, sweet delight of eternal bliss. I greet and praise Thee with the same love which made Thee leave Heaven and become a poor Child.


Glory and praise be to Thee, most precious little Jesus, joy and honor of Thy Heavenly Father! I thank Thee through Thine Own sweet Heart which Thou didst reveal to the whole world through Thy birth. I greet Thee over and over again, most beautiful little Jesus, sweetest delight of the Father's Heart, refreshment of sick souls. I offer to Thee my own heart for Thy eternal glory and service.


Jesus, crown, love, joy, bliss of virgins! Thy love made Thee the Son of a Virgin. May Thou be glorified and praised forever. Amen. (St. Gertrude)
