The Passion

matthiasgrunewald_thecrucifixion2

Jesus, our Lord and our God,
you gave your cheek to those who struck you
and for our sake you endured much mockery.
Grant that following the example of your sufferings,
we may be courageous in bearing our own,
and learn from you,
for you are meek and lowly in heart;
you now reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.

Translation from Daily Prayer in traditional English:

Jesus, our Lord and our God, who gavest thy cheek to those who smote thee and wast for our sake filled full with reproach; Grant that after the example of thy sufferings, we may be valiant in bearing our own, and learn of thee, the meek and lowly of heart; who now reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
