O sacred head, surrounded

O sacred head, surrounded
By crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding head, so wounded,
Reviled and put to scorn!
No comeliness or beauty
Thy wounded face betrays,
Yet angel hosts adore thee
And tremble as they gaze.

O Love, all love transcending,
O Wisdom from on high!
O truth, unchanged, unchanging,
Surrendered up to die!
Was e'er a love so wondrous!
That from his heavenly throne
God should descend among us
To suffer for his own.

O Jesus, we adore thee,
Upon the cross our King!
We humbly bow before thee,
And of thy victory sing!
Thy cross is our salvation,
Our hope from day to day,
Our peace and consolation
When life shall fade away.
