Lyrics for Hymn: Holy Jesu, by thy passion
Holy Jesu, by thy passion,
By the woes which none can share,
Bourne in more than kingly fashion
By thy love beyond compare:
Crucified I turn to Thee,
Son of Mary, plead for me.
By the treachery and trial,
By the blows and sore distress
By desertion and denial
by thine awful loneliness:
By Thy look so sweet and lowly,
While they smote Thee on the Face,
By Thy patience, calm and holy,
In the midst of keen disgrace:
By the hour of condemnation,
By the blood which trickled down,
When, for us and our salvation,
Thou dids't wear the robe and crown:
By the path of sorrows dreary,
By the Cross, Thy dreadful load,
By the pain, when faint and weary,
Thou dids't sink upon the road?
By the Spirit which could render
Love for hate and good for ill,
By the mercy, sweet and tender,
Poured upon Thy murderers still:
