Thankful and astonished that He took the place
that I deserved ... and I am His forever because He did,

"He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities." - Isaiah 53:5

"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;
O sacred Head, what glory, what bliss till now was Thine!
Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call Thee mine. 
2. What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered, 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. 
3. 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 to Thee.



  1. And even HIS grace must give us the strength to love Him as we ought. I, too, never want to outlive my love for Christ...
