|1- I'm the one who the crown
I'm the one who put the robe;
I'm the one whose hand smitted
Shouting "Hail King" to my Lord.
2- I'm the one who cried out
"Crucify Him", crucify,
In full throat I did shout,
Still today I do deny.
3- I'm the one who pierced Your side,
I'm the one who dares to think
When Your holy Mouth says "I thirst"
Gall and vinegar mixed, You drink.
4- I'm the one tempted as Judas,
With my cheap silver as Thy price,
I'm the one who swears denying,
Everyday more than thrice.
5- You prayed "Father forgive them:
They know not what they do."
I'm the sinner for whom You died,
You are my refuge, where I go.
