Refrain:

All   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 himself to 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.

1 Peter 2.21b-25

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   Christ committed no sin,

no guile was found on his lips.
