O SACRED HEAD, NOW WOUNDED
(LSB 449)


1. O sacred Head, now wounded, With grief and shame weighed down,


Now scornfully surrounded With thorns, Thine only crown.


O sacred head, what glory, What bliss till now was Thine!


Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call Thee mine.



2. What Thou, my Lord hast suffered Was all for sinners' gain;


Mine, mine was the transgression, But Thine the deadly pain.


Lo, here I fall, my Savior! 'Tis I deserve Thy place;


Look on me with Thy favor, And grant to me Thy grace.



3. What language shall I borrow To thank Thee, dearest Friend,


For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?


O make me Thine forever! And should I fainting be,


Lord, let me never, never, Out-live my love for Thee.



4. Be Thou my consolation, My shield, when I must die;


Remind me of Thy passion When my last hour draws nigh.


Mine eyes shall then behold Thee, Upon Thy cross shall dwell,


My heart by faith enfold Thee, Who dieth thus dies well.

The Wisconsin and Missouri Synod Lutherans have the second best music in all of Christendom. It is quite something to hear their songs from the Lutheran Service Book performed on a pipe organ. If I wasn’t Orthodox, I would probably be in one of their churches.



We Praise You and Acknowledge You, O God – Lutheran Service Book 941

1 We praise You and acknowledge You, O God, to be the Lord,
The Father everlasting, by all the earth adored.
To You all angel powers cry aloud, the heavens sing,
The cherubim and seraphim their praises to You bring:
“O holy, holy, holy Lord God of Sabaoth;
Your majesty and glory fill the heavens and the earth!”

2 The band of the apostles in glory sing Your praise;
The fellowship of prophets their deathless voices raise.
The martyrs of Your kingdom, a great and noble throng,
Sing with the holy Church throughout all the world this song:
“O all-majestic Father, Your true and only Son,
And Holy Spirit, Comforter—forever Three in One!”

3 You, Christ, are King of glory, the everlasting Son,
Yet You, with boundless love, sought to rescue ev’ryone:
You laid aside Your glory, were born of virgin’s womb,
Were crucified for us and were placed into a tomb;
Then by Your resurrection You won for us reprieve—
You opened heaven’s kingdom to all who would believe.

4 You sit in splendid glory, enthroned at God’s right hand,
Upholding earth and heaven by forces You command.
We know that You will come as our Judge that final day,
So help Your servants You have redeemed by blood, we pray;
May we with saints be numbered where praises never end,
In glory everlasting. Amen, O Lord, amen!

One of our pastors in Michigan is Stephen Starkey. He has taken multiple melodies from others and created a good number of excellent hymns including the one you've posted here based on the British/Church of England melody entitled, "I Vow To Thee My Country" which, in turn, is based on the melody known as "Thaxed" by English composer Gustav Holst.

Traditional Lutherans have a very rich history of theologically sound and stately hymnody. Thanks for the compliment, Watchingtheweasels!

This is another example of truly reverent hymnody as performed by the Kantorai Choir from my seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The hymn is "Of the Father's Love Begotten" which was written by Aurelius Prudentius Clemens, 348-413 BC, the tune is a plainsong 13th century chant and is often sung during the season of Christmas in Lutheran Churches and no doubt also in Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches as well.

Sorry, didn't realize I was violating a rule. The link to the book was shorthand for a footnote.
You didn't break a rule... I just thought that post should be it's own thread. Read your pm's

EASTERN ORTHODOX HYMN FOR PASCHA
(English / Church Slavonic)


Christ is risen from the dead
trampling down death by death,
and on those in the tombs bestowing life.

Христос воскресе из мертвых,
смертию смерть поправ
и сущим во гробех живот даровав.
