Behold, the Lamb of God

Agnus Dei - Francisco de Zurburán (1598-1664)

Agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem. Amen


Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace. Amen.


Surely, He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, an He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.... He hath poured out His soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bore the sin of many, and made intercessions for the transgressors.

-- Isaiah 53:3-7;12b


Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.
