Lord Christ, we praise your sacrifice

Lord Christ, we praise your sacrifice,|
your life in love so freely given.
For those who took your life away
you prayed, that they might be forgiven;
and there, in helplessness arrayed,
God's power was perfectly displayed.
Once helpless in your mother's arms,
dependent on her mercy then,
at last, by choice, in other hands,
you were as helpless once again;
and, at their mercy, crucified,
you claimed your victory and died.
Though helpless and rejected then,
you're now as risen Lord acclaimed;
forever by your sacrifice
is God's eternal love proclaimed:
the love, which, dying, brings to birth
new life and hope for all on earth.
So, living Lord, prepare us now
your willing helplessness to share,
to give ourselves in sacrifice,
to overcome the world's despair;
in love to give our lives away
and claim your victory today.
