O Sacred Head Now Wounded

(This video is somewhat graphic in nature. The images are used from the movie ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and I neither endorse nor denounce it. I chose this because I feel we shouldn’t hide nor be ignorant from the reality of the suffering Jesus Christ bore on our behalf. It was real. It should move and effect us deeply. ~traci)

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 does that 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.
