For the Fifth Sunday of Lent

Deep within our hearts, O God,
you have written your law,
and high upon the cross
you have lifted up our salvation,
the Saviour made perfect in suffering.
From the death of that single grain
sown in the weary earth,
bring forth in this Lenten springtime
a rich harvest of life.
As the hour of his passion draws near,
glorify your name,
and in our baptismal renewal,
let it be glorified again.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(From Benedictine Daily Prayer)
