The Psalter consists of three parts, each part having five petitions. Each petition is followed by "Have mercy on all sinners ..." and the last petition of each part, that is the fifth, tenth, and fifteenth petitions have an added prayer at the end.

 

 

THE FIRST PART

Begin by kneeling devoutly, or bowing, at the adorable Name of Jesus, saying:

 

That in the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth:

have mercy on me.

 

Jesus, have mercy on me, O God of compassion, and forgive the many
and great offenses which I have committed in Thy sight. Many have been
the follies of my life, and great are the miseries which I have deserved for
my ingratitude.

 

Have mercy on me, dear Jesus, for I am weak;
O Lord, heal me, who am unable to help myself.

Deliver me from setting my heart upon any of Thy creatures,
which may divert my eyes from a continual looking up to Thee.
Grant me grace henceforth, for the love of Thee, to hate sin; and
out of a just esteem for Thee, to despise all worldly vanities.

Have mercy on all sinners, Jesus, I beseech Thee; turn their vices into virtues;
and, making them true observers of Thy law and sincere lovers of Thee,
bring to them bliss in everlasting glory.

Have mercy also on the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for Thy bitter Passion,
 I beseech Thee, and for Thy glorious Name, Jesus.

Bring often to my remembrance Thy unsurpassable goodness, Thy gifts, and the great kindness which Thou hast shown me.

And when Thou bringeth to my mind the sad remembrance of my sins, whereby I have so ungratefully offended Thee, comfort me with the assurance of obtaining Thy grace by the spirit of perfect repentance, which will take away my guilt, and prepare me for Thy Kingdom.

Let me always hold fast to the doctrines of Thy Catholic Church, and fulfill all my Christian obligations.

Let me not risk losing Thy friendship by sin, but soon return to repentance, lest the sentence of endless death and damnation fall upon me.

Let the powerful intercession of Thy Blessed Mother, and all Thy Saints, but above all, Thy own merits and mercy, O my Savior, be ever between Thy righteous justice and my soul still tempted by sin.

Then, by the holy intercession of Thy Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph, and the assistance of the glorious Saint Michael, deliver me from the enemy of my soul; and do thou, my good Angel, I beseech thee, help me at that most solemn hour.

Then, dear Jesus, remember Thy mercy, and turn not Thy most lovable face away from me because of my offenses.

Prepare me for that day, by causing me now to die daily to all earthly things, and so to have my conversation continually in Heaven.

Jesus, send me here my Purgatory, so that I may be made ready to share the happiness of Heaven. Grant me those merciful crosses and afflictions which take away my false affection for all things here below,

Since no one can see Thee that loves anything which is not for Thy sake, suffer not my heart to find any rest here, but in Thee alone.

Control in me, dear Jesus, all inordinate affections to things of the flesh so that I treat others with love and respect.

Thy power defend, Thy wisdom direct, Thy Fatherly pity correct me, and cause me to live here among other in such manner that I may be fit for the conversation of Angels hereafter.

So shall I, with joy and gratitude, look upon Thee as my deliverer from all evil, and as my benefactor for all the good I have ever received, or can hope for.

I shall see that Thou art my only good, and that all other things are but means, ordained by Thee, to bring me to fix my mind on Thee, to make me love Thee more and more, and by loving Thee, to be happy eternally.
