Ah holy Jesu how hast Thou offended




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.


Lo, the Good Shepherd for
the sheep is offered;
The slave hath sinned,
and the Son hath suffered;
For man's atonement,
while he nothing heedeth,
God intercedeth.


For me, kind Jesus,
was Thy incarnation,
Thy mortal sorrow,
and Thy life's oblation;
Thy death of anguish and
Thy bitter passion,
For my salvation.


Therefore, kind Jesus,
since I cannot pay Thee,
I do adore Thee,
and will ever pray Thee,
Think on Thy pity and
Thy love unswerving,
Not my deserving.
