Great Holy Week Song


Hi! :slight_smile:

I’ve heard a beautiful song during the mass today but I don’t know what its title is. It’s chanted to the tune of “Pange Lingua Gloriosi” (, but the song is in English and still rhymes. It speaks about how the cross, once a sign and humiliation, became a sign of liberty. I remember a phrase “Tree of Eden” as part of the stanza. If anyone could point me to the song lyrics, I would really appreciate it. :slight_smile:


Good song. Thanks for sharing.


Could it be Faithful Cross Above All Other? I believe that is sung to the tune Pange Lingua. In fact it’s the 2nd part of the Pange Lingua.


Crux Fidelis, formerly part of the Good Friday liturgy.
