Refrain:
My people what have I done to you?
How have I offended you? Answer me!
Holy is God, Holy and strong!
Holy, Immortal One, have mercy on us.

1.
I led you out of Egypt, from slavery to freedom:
but you led your Saviour to the cross.

2.
I opened the sea before you.
Refrain

3.
I led you on your way in a pillar of cloud:
but you led me to Pilate's court.

4.
I bore you up with manna in the desert.
Refrain

5.
I gave you saving water from the rock:
but you gave me gall and vinegar to drink.

6.
For you I struck down the Kings.
Refrain

7.
I gave you a royal sceptre:
but you gave me a crown of thorns.

8.
I raised you to the heights of majesty.
Refrain
