o sacred head now wounded

Intro - Am 

 

    F                    G             C

O sacred Head, now wounded,

         Am         E          Am

With grief and shame bow'd down,

     F                G          C

Now scornfully surrounded

       Am            E    Am

With thorns, Thine only crown.

    G         F              C

O sacred Head, what glory,

      F                        A             

What bliss till now was Thine!

      G        C       D         G

Yet, though despised and gory,

      F      G         Am

I joy to call Thee mine.

 

 

    F                    G             C

What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered,

         Am         E          Am

Was all for sinners' gain;

    F                    G             C

My sin was the transgression,

         Am         E          Am

But Thine the deadly pain:

    G         F              C

Lo, here I fall, my Savior!

      F                        A             

'Tis I deserve Thy place;

      G        C       D         G

Look on me with Thy favor,

      F      G         Am

Vouchsafe to me Thy grace.

 

 

    F                    G             C

The joy can never be spoken,

         Am         E          Am

above all joys beside,

    F                    G             C

When in Thy body broken

         Am         E          Am

I thus with safety hide.

    G         F              C

O Lord of Life, desiring

      F                        A             

Thy glory now to see,

      G        C       D         G

Beside Thy cross expiring,

      F      G         Am

I’d breathe my soul to Thee
