O my Jesus,
You know that I have gotten myself into
a lot of trouble for speaking out the truth.
O truth, so often oppressed,
you nearly always wear a crown of thorns!
O Eternal Truth, support me
that I may have the courage to speak the truth
even if it would come about
that I would pay for it with my life.
O Jesus, how hard it is to believe in this,
when one sees one thing taught
and something else lived.
