Lyrics

Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,
That man to judge thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by thine own rejected,
O most afflicted.

Who was the guilty?
Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus hath undone thee.
'Twas I Lord, Jesus, I it was denied thee:
I crucified thee.

Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee,
I will adore thee, and will ever pray thee,
Think on thy pity, and thy love unswerving;
Not my deserving.
