49 A SONG OF CHRIST THE SERVANT
Christus passus est pro vobis

Refrain: Christ committed no sin,*
no guile was found on his lips.
1 Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example,*
that you should follow in his steps.
2 He committed no sin, no guile was found on his lips,*
when he was reviled, he did not revile in turn.
3 When he suffered, he did not threaten,*
but he trusted in God who judges justly.
4 Christ himself bore our sins in his body on the tree,*
that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.
5 By his wounds, you have been healed,
   for you were straying like sheep,*
but have now returned
   to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.
Glory . . . 1 Peter 2. 21-25
Christ committed no sin,*
no guile was found on his lips.
