You Suffered for Us

File:Orcagna - The Crucifixion - Walters 372405.jpg

O God,
the Son of God,
you suffered for us,
the just for the unjust.
Save us by the shame of your Passion,
and clothe us with the robe of your righteousness,
so that through the unmerited suffering of your death,
we may escape the punishment our sins have deserved.
Amen.

Hear the sorrowful sighing of your Church, O Lord,
for which you suffered death on the cross.
Let your people,
who trust in what you have endured for them,
never be put to shame.
Be their support in all trials,
and crown them at last with glory everlasting.
Amen.

Through your mercy, O our God.
You are blessed 
and live and govern all things, 
now and forever.
Amen.

English translation from the source in traditional English:

O God, the Son of God, Who didst suffer for us, the just for the unjust; Save us by the shame of Thy Passion, and clothe us with the robe of Thy righteousness, so that, through the unmerited suffering of Thy death, we may escape the punishment our sins have deserved.
Ans. Amen.

Min. Hear the sorrowful sighing of Thy Church, O Lord, Who for her didst suffer death upon the cross. Let her, whose sole trust is in what Thou didst endure for her, never be put to shame. Be her support in all trials, and crown her at last with glory everlasting.
Ans. Amen.

Min. Through Thy mercy, O our God, Who art blessed, and dost live, and govern all things, world without end.
Ans. Amen.
