The Canticle of the Passion

The Canticle of the Passion

My friends and My neighbors * have drawn near and stood against Me.

I was delivered up and came not forth; * My eyes languished through poverty.

And my sweat became as drops of blood, * trickling down and upon the ground.

For many dogs have encompassed Me * the council of the malignant hath besieged Me.

I have given My body to the strikers * and My cheeks to them that plucked them.

I have not turned away My face from them that rebuked Me * and spit upon Me.

For I am ready for scourges, * and My sorrow is continually before Me.

The soldiers, plaiting a crown of thorns, placed it upon My head.

They have dug My hands and feet; * they have numbered all My bones.

And they gave Me gall for My food; * and in My thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.

All they that saw Me laughed Me to scorn; * they have spoken with lips and wagged their heads.

They have looked and stared upon Me; * they parted My garments among them and upon My vesture they cast lots.

Into Thy hands I commend My spirit; * Thou has redeemed me, O God of truth.

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants, * when Thou shalt come into Thy kingdom.

And Jesus having cried out with a loud voice * gave up the ghost.

The mercies of the Lord * I will sing for all eternity.

Surely He hath borne our infirmities * and carried our sorrows.

He was bruised for our sins.

All we, like sheep, have gone astray; * every one hath turned aside into his own way.

For the Lord hath placed upon him * the iniquities of us all.

Arise, why sleepest Thou, O Lord? * Arise and cast us not off to the end.

Behold, God is my Saviour, * I will deal confidently, and will not fear.

We beseech Thee, O Lord, help Thy servants * whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood.

V. Have mercy on us, O benign Jesus. R. Who in Thy clemency didst suffer for us.

Look down, we beseech Thee, O Lord, on this Thy family for which Our Lord Jesus Christ did not hesitate to be delivered into the hands of the wicked, and suffer the torments of the Cross.
