At Mass today we used the tune for
O Sacred Head Surrounded.
Unfortunately (for me) we sang the words to the hymn on the preceding page in the CBWIII.
I just love this:
O sacred head, surrounded
by crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding head, so wounded,
reviled and put to scorn!
Death’s pallid hue comes over thy
The glow of life decays,
yet angel hosts adore thee
and tremble as they gaze
What a pathetic creature our Lord must have looked like, all bloody and nailed to a cross.
And still, in all eternity, angels and saints adore him, and seeing His sacrifice,
tremble as they gaze!!!
Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoath!
