Hymn: TLH 172, st. 1-2,4,10: O Sacred Head Now Wounded

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. O sacred Head, now wounded, 
With grief and shame weighed down, 
Now scornfully surrounded 
With thorns, Thine only crown. 
O sacred Head, what glory, 
What bliss, till now was Thine! 
Yet, though despised and gory, 
I joy to call Thee mine. 

2. Men mock and taunt and jeer Thee, 
Thou noble countenance, 
Though mighty worlds shall fear Thee 
And flee before Thy glance. 
How art thou pale with anguish, 
With sore abuse and scorn! 
How doth Thy visage languish 
That once was bright as morn! 

4. My burden in Thy Passion, 
Lord, Thou hast borne for me, 
For it was my transgression 
Which brought this woe on thee. 
I cast me down before Thee, 
Wrath were my rightful lot; 
Have mercy, I implore Thee; 
Redeemer, spurn me not! 

10. Be Thou my Consolation, 
My Shield when I must die; 
Remind me of Thy Passion 
When my last hour draws nigh. 
Mine eyes shall then behold Thee, 
Upon Thy cross shall dwell, 
My heart by faith enfold Thee. 
Who dieth thus dies well!
