O Sacred Head Now Wounded

  1. O sacred Head, now wounded,
    With grief and shame weighed down,
    Now scornfully surrounded
    With thorns, Thine only crown
    How pale thou art with anguish,
    with sore abuse and scorn!
    How doth Thy visage languish
    which once was bright as morn!

    What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered,
    T'was all for sinners' gain;
    Mine, mine was the transgression,
    But Thine the deadly pain.

    Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
    'Tis I deserve Thy place;
    Look on me with Thy favor,
    Vouchsafe to me Thy grace.

    What language shall I borrow
    To thank Thee, dearest friend,
    For this Thy dying sorrow,
    Thy pity without end?
    O make me Thine forever,
    And should I fainting be,
    Lord, let me never, never
    Outlive my love for Thee. 

    O, I love You, I love You, I love YOU.

 I love this song and thought it was appropriate with Easter coming up. Have a wonderful Good Friday!

What songs do you enjoy and remind you to meditate on Christ?

For HIS glory,
