Thy Servant in Christ


Explanation:
Possible variations:
Thy-->Your
Christ--> the Lord; Christ Jesus; Jesus Christ

"Thy" may sound a little more archaic, but if you lean towards king james/reina valera language, it is the right word, since KJV does not use "your" that way.

I've read the Bible in both languages several times and that is what sounds most correct to me.

Your servant in Christ Jesus


Explanation:
The suggestions thus far are perfectly fine. But note that "Cristo Jesus" is not normal in Spanish. I think the expression may appear in one or other of the epistles (greeting or conclusion). Hence stilted sound may be what is intended.


    Lots of experience with the Catholic church, and lots of translation of church documens.
