1 Jesus Christ, our Lord most holy,
Lamb of God so pure and lowly,
Blameless, blameless, on the cross art offered,
Sinless, sinless, for our sins hast suffered.

2 Weep now, all ye wretched creatures,
As ye view His gracious features.
Jesus, Jesus, on the cross is dying,
Nature, nature, in dark gloom is sighing.

3 Christ, His last word having spoken,
Bows His head as life is broken.
Mournful, mournful, stands His mother weeping,
Loved ones, loved ones, silent watch are keeping.

4 The great veil was torn asunder,
Earth did quake mid roars of thunder,
Boulders, boulders, into bits were breaking;
Sainted, sainted, dead from death were waking.

5 As His side with spear was riven,
Blood and water forth were given.
Jesus, Jesus, sinners' only Savior,
Mercy, mercy, grant to us forever.
