Palm Sunday


Oh Sacred Head, Now Wounded

verse two
 What language shall I borrow
To thank thee dearest Friend,
For this thy dying sorrow,
Thy pity without end ?
Oh make me thine forever!
And should I fainting be,
Lord,
let me never,
never,
Out live my love for thee!

Bernard of Ciarvaux 1091-1153
translated James Alexander 1830

  3. Great words for this Palm Sunday. I love those old hymns....I can still hear choirs and churches full of worshipers singing this song in harmony.
