The following is component of a liturgy I wrote a couple of years ago that I generally return to:
Jesus you took bread and broke it,
You shared it with your close friends.
As you have been broken to feed us with the bread of life.
Jesus you took wine and poured it out,
Grapes crushed and drained of life.
As you have been crushed and drained of your life blood.

Right here is component of a longer liturgy created for church or tiny group use:
Currently we stroll with Christ in the dark shadow of the cross,
Realizing we have weighed him down,
Our burdens crushed his shoulders,
His suffering is for us,
For us he willingly endured death.
Let us trust in God alone,
And stroll the way of the cross collectively,
Let us move forward with out worry into God’s eternal purposes.
Then we will by no means know disgrace,
And we will find out to praise our God who by no means abandons us.
