Hymn/Song Information

When wounded sore the stricken heart




When wounded sore, the stricken heart
Lies bleeding and unbound,
One only hand, a piercŤd hand,
Can salve the sinnerís wound.


When sorrow swells the laden breast,
And tears of anguish flow,
One only heart, a broken heart,
Can feel the sinnerís woe.


When penitential grief has wept
Over some foul dark spot,
One only stream, a stream of blood,
Can wash away the blot.


íTis Jesusí blood that washes white,
His hand that brings relief,
His heart thatís touched with all our joys,
And feels for all our grief.


Lift up Thy bleeding hand, O Lord,
Unseal that cleansing tide;
We have no shelter from our sin
But in Thy wounded side.


---Alternative verses---


When wounded sore, the stricken soul
Lies bleeding and unbound:
One hand alone, a pierced hand,
Can heal the sinner's wound.


When sorrow swells the laden breast,
And tears of anguish flow,
One heart alone, a broken heart,
Can feel the sinner's woe.


When penitence has wept in vain
Over some foul dark spot,
One only stream, a stream of blood,
Can wash away the blot.


'Tis Jesus' blood that washes white,
His hand, that brings relief;
His heart, that's touched with all our joys,
And feeleth for our grief.
