O Sacred Head, Surrounded Lyrics

1.
O sacred head, surrounded
by crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding head, so wounded,
reviled and put to scorn!
Death’s pallid hue comes o’er you,
The glow of life decays,
yet angel hosts adore you
and tremble as they gaze


2.
I see thy strength and vigour
all fading in the strife,
and death with cruel rigor,
bereaving you of life;
O bitter pains and dying!
That set the sinners free!
May you your grace supplying,
O Jesus look at me.

3.
O Jesus, I adore you,
And humble plea I bring,
My guilt I own before you,
O pardon me, my King,
Your cross is my salvation,
In life it is my stay,
My hope and consolation,
When life blood ebbs away.

O Sacred Head, Surrounded Lyrics
