and led thee to a land exceeding good:
and thou hast prepared a cross for thy Saviour.

Congregation:
Holy God, holy and mighty, holy and immortal,

Before thee I opened the sea:
and with a spear thou hast opened my side.
I went before thee in a pillar of cloud:
and thou hast brought me to the judgment hall of Pilate.

have mercy upon us.

I fed thee with manna in the desert:
and thou hast beaten me with blows and stripes.
I made thee to drink the water of salvation from the rock:
and thou hast made me to drink gall and vinegar.

Holy God, holy and mighty, holy and immortal,
have mercy upon us.

I gave thee a royal sceptre:
and thou hast given my head a crown of thorns.
I lifted thee up with great power:
and thou hast hung me upon the gibbet of the cross.

Congregation:
Holy God, holy and mighty, holy and immortal,
have mercy upon us.
