118. O Dearest Lord, Thy Sacred Head

1 O dearest Lord, thy sacred head
With thorns was pierced for me;
Oh, pour thy blessing on my head
That I may think for thee.

2 O dearest Lord, thy sacred hands
With nails were pierced for me;
Oh, shed thy blessing on my hands
That they may work for thee.

3 O dearest Lord, thy sacred feet
With nails were pierced for me;
Oh, pour thy blessing on my feet
That they may follow thee.

4 O dearest Lord, thy sacred heart
With spear was pierced for me;
Oh, pour thy Spirit in my heart
That I may live for thee.
