O crucified Redeemer, whose lifeblood we have spilt,
to you we raise our guilty hands and humbly own our guilt.
Today we see your passion spread open to our gaze;
the crowded street, the country road, its Calvary displays.

We hear your cry by anguish, we see your life outpoured,
where battlefields run red with blood, our neighbours' blood, O Lord;
and in that other battle, the fight for daily bread,
where might is right and self is king, we see your thorncrowned head.

The groaning of creation, wrung out by pain and care,
the anguish of a million hearts that break in dumb despair;
O crucified Redeemer, these are your cries of pain;
O may they break our selfish hearts, and love come in to reign.
