Redeemed Hymn 125 – O Head Once Fill’d with Bruises

“And thy smote Him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon Him” -Mark 15:19

1 O head once fill’d with bruises

Oppressed with pain and scorn:

O’erwhelm’d with sore abuses,

Mock’d with a crown of thorn!

In shame upon the tree,

In glory now surrounded,

With brightest Majesty!


2 Thou, Lord of all transcendent;

Thou life-creating Sun

To worlds on Thee dependent

Yet bruised and spit upon!

O Lord! what Thee tormented

Which Thou didst pay in blood.

Was our sin’s heavy load;

We had the debt augmented


3 We give Thee thanks unfeigned.

Lord Jesus, Friend in need,

For what Thy Soul sustained,

When Thou for us didst bleed;

Grant us to lean unshaken

Upon Thy faithfulness,

Until to glory taken,

We see Thee face to face.
