O Sacred Head, Now Wounded

"What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered
Was all for sinners’ gain;
Mine, mine was the transgression,
But Yours the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior,
It is I who deserve Your place;
Look on me with Your favor,
Promise to me Your grace."

--from O Sacred Head, Now Wounded, written by Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153)
