English.png English text

Because of the raising of Lazarus, O Lord, who love humankind,
the Jewish children cried “Hosanna” to you, O Christ;
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.

At you[r] supper, O Christ our God, you announced to your disciples,
“One of you will betray me”,
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.

When John asked you, O Lord,
“Who is it that betrays you?”
you revealed who it was by means of the morsel of bread,
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.

For thirty pieces of silver and a treacherous kiss, O Lord,
the people sought to kill you
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.

God, you commanded to your disciples:
“Do as you have seen me do”
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.

“Keep watch and pray, lest you be tempted”,
you said to your disciples, O Christ our God,
but Judas the transgressor was unwilling to understand.
