Friday — into the darkness

O Sacred head now wounded
With grief and shame weighed down
Now scornfully surrounded
With thorns Thy only crown
How pale Thou art with anguish
With sore abuse and scorn
How does that visage languish
Which once was bright as morn
— “O Sacred Head Now Wounded”, Bernard of Clairvaux
