Celebrant :
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.

People :
Because by Your holy Cross and Resurrection, You have redeemed the world.

Celebrant :
Though He was harshly treated, He submitted and opened not His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearers, He was silent and opened not His mouth. Oppressed and condemned, though He had done no wrong nor spoken any falsehood. But the Lord was pleased to crush Him in infirmity. Because of His affliction He shall see the light in fullness of days (Isaiah 53:7-10).

Steep my soul till it hath swooned
In His very Blood away.
