A Lutheran Hymn About Death

The first verse pertains to Christ's crucifixion.

"O, Sacred Head, now wounded

In grief and shame weighed down

How scornfully surrounded

With thorns thine only crown

O, Sacred Head, what glory!

What bliss till now was thine

And though despised and gory

I joy to call thee mine."

The second verse pertains to human death.

"Be near me when I'm dying

O show thy cross to me

With all my succor flying

Come, Lord, to set me free!

New faith these eyes receiving

New grace from up above

For he(she) who dies believing

Dies safely in Thy love."
