Canticle: Christ Suffered for You (A Song of Christ the Servant)

The canticle Christ Suffered for You (A Song of Christ the Servant) is used in the Roman Liturgy of the Hours in later Evening Prayer on Sundays in Lent.

Christ suffered for you,
leaving you an example,
so that you might follow in his steps.
He committed no sin,
neither was deceit found in his mouth.
When he was reviled,
he did not revile in return;
when he suffered,
he did not threaten,
but continued entrusting himself
to him who judges justly.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree,
that we might die to sin
and live to righteousness.
By his wounds you have been healed.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
