The Passion

"O sacred Head , now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down.
Now scornfully surrounded with thorns Thine only crown.
How pale Thou art with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish which once was bright as morn!"

Paul Gerhardt, 1607-1676 James Alexander, 1804-1859
