      Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
      Lamb of God,
      you who chose the path,
      step by painful step
      from Gethsemani's dark shadows
      up to Golgotha's stark hilltop,
      the passover offering,
      you who gave your blood
      to mark the lintels of our lives,
      and save us from the darkness,
      have mercy on us.

      Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
      Lamb of God,
      you who bore upon your shoulders
      the blood guilt of all of our sins,
      the guilt, blacker than night,
      each wrong word,
      each blow,
      each deceit,
      from the fall to the end,
      You, pure in your innocence,
      freely bearing the darkness,
      redeeming us
      blood drop by blood drop
      stripe by stripe,
      nail by nail,
      gasping breath by breath,
      until carrying your burden
      to the halls of death,
      you gave birth to hope.
      Thank you for having mercy on us.

      Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem.
      Lamb of God,
      You who gave up all,
      friends, mother,
      dignity, honor,
      anger,
      hate,
      and left us life, hope,
      truth, love,
      and salvation in return,
      May we,
      who cling to your cross,
      grow to have a heart like yours,
      a love like yours,
      filled always with your truth,
      light,
      and peace,
      this day and always,
      Amen.
