Ah, holy Jesus, how have you offended

Ah, holy Jesus, how have you offended
that man to judge you has in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by your own rejected,
O most afflicted!

2. Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon you?
It is my treason, Lord, that has undone you;
and I, O Jesus, it was I denied you,
I crucified you.

3. See how the shepherd for the sheep is offered,
the slave has sinned and yet the Son has suffered;
for our atonement hangs the Saviour bleeding,
God interceding.

4. For me, kind Jesus, was your incarnation,
your dying sorrow and your life’s oblation,
your bitter passion and your desolation,
for my salvation.

5. O mighty Saviour, I cannot repay you,
I do adore you and will here obey you:
recall your mercy and your love unswerving,
not my deserving.
