1 To this we have been called
for Christ has suffered this for us
and spelled a pattern out for us
that we should follow in his steps.

2 For He did nothing wrong;
he spoke no lie; through curse and pain
he gave no threats nor curses back,
but trusted in the righteous Judge.

3 He took our sins himself
in his own body on the Cross
that we should end our life to sins
and start a life to righteousness.

4 His wounds have made us whole;
like sheep we strayed, but we have now
turned back to him who guards our souls,
our Leader, Rescuer and Guide.
