AH, HOLY JESU, HAST THOU OFFENDED

1.AH, holy Jesu, how hast  Thou offended,
That man to judge Thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided,by Thine  own rejected,
O  most afflicted.

2.Who was the guilty?Who brought this upon Thee?
Alas,my treason,Jesu,hath undone Thee;
'Twas I, Lord Jesu,It was denied Thee:
1 crucified Thee.

3.Lo,the good Shepherd for the sheep is offered;
The  slave  hath  sinned,and  the Son hath suffered;
For man's atonement,while he nothing heedeth,
God  intercedeth.

4.For me, kind Jesu, was Thy Incar-nation,
Thy mortal sorrow, and Thy life's oblation;
Thy death of anguish and Thy bitter passion,
For my salvation.
