All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

SIKLAT ARB - GOOD FRIDAY
Placing your right hand on the forehead, say:
Lord, Thou Who art crowned with thorns upon Thy head, to blood and marrow, for the sake of my sins; have mercy.
Lowering the hand to the right foot, say:
Lord Jesus, Whose right foot was pierced with an iron nail for the sake of my sins; have mercy.
Placing the hand on the left foot, say:
Oh Christ, Whose left foot was pierced with an iron nail for the sake of my sins; have mercy.
Raising the hand to the left shoulder, say
Oh Only-begotten Son of God, Whose left hand was pierced for the sake of my sins; have mercy.
Transferring the hand to the right shoulder, say:
Son of the Father, Whose right hand was pierced with an iron nail for the sake of my sins; and Whose side was punctured by a spear; from Whose side flowed blood and water for the redemption and salvation of our souls; have mercy.
Turning one's face towards the icon of the Mother of God, say:
Through the Mother of God, Blessed St. Mary, grant me understanding; for Mary's sake, have mercy.
And through Thee Thyself, through Thy soul the sword pierced, so that from many hearts will be revealed a spring of the repentant, thankful and heartfelt tears of all mankind; for Mary's sake, have mercy.
