Scripture: Luke 24:26
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 How art thou pale with anguish, With sore abuse and scorn;
How does that visage languish Which once was bright as morn!
Thy grief and bitter Passion, Were all for sinner's gain;
Mine, mine was the transgression, But thine the deadly pain.
3 What language shall I borrow To thank thee, dearest friend,
For this, thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
Oh make me thine forever, And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never Outlive my love to thee.
4 Be near me when I'm dying, O show thy cross to me;
On thee I am relying, Come thou and set me free.
These eyes new faith receiving, From thee shall never move;
For those who die believing Die safely in thy love.
