O Sacred Head now wounded With grief and shame




O Sacred Head now wounded!
With grief and shame weighed down;
O sacred brow, surrounded
With thorns, thine only crown!
Once on a throne of glory;
Adorned with light divine,
Now all despised and gory,
I joy to call thee mine.


On me, as thou art dying,
Oh, turn thy pitying eye!
To thee for mercy crying,
Before thy cross I lie.
Thine, thine the bitter passion,
Thy pain is all for me;
Mine, mine the deep transgression,
My sins are all on thee.


What language can I borrow
To thank thee, dearest Friend,
For all this dying sorrow,
Of all my woes the end?
Oh can I leave thee ever?
Then do not thou leave me:
Lord, let me never, never
Outlive my love to thee.


Be near when I am dying;
Then close beside me stand;
Let me, while faint and sighing,
Lean calmly on thy hand:
These eyes new faith receiving,
From thine eye shall not move;
For he who dies believing,
Dies safely in thy love.
