Per l'amor di Dio!


Explanation:
Concordo con "Cristo santo" ma, a seconda del contesto, il termine "credo" secondo me sta ad indicare, oltre a sorpresa, anche un certo ribrezzo, persino paura. "Credo" infatti è l'inizio di una preghiera che si fa per evocare la protezione divina. "Cristo Santo" pertanto potrebbe non esser adatto, perché è più un'esclamazione di rabbia, credo, che di sorpresa, ribrezzo o paura.
