We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden (O Sacred Head)

Representative Text

1. Ho Sankta Kap', kronita per pika dorno-kron',
Sanganta kaj vundita, memvola ofer-don'!
Vin mokas soldataro, dum vivo fluas for,
Sed supre anĝelaro rigardas kun ador'.

2. Vin lasas ĉiu forto, paligas vin dolor',
Alproksimiĝas morto, rompiĝas via kor'.
Ho amo vere Dia! Vi mortas ja por mi!
La peko estis mia, la punon prenis vi!

3. Sen vortoj mia koro por taŭga dank-esprim'
Pri tiu mort-doloro, kompato ja sen lim'.
Mi restu via ĉiam, fidela ĝis la fin';
Neniam, ho neniam mi ĉesu ami vin!

4. En mia lasta horo, Savanto, montru vin,
Kaj ĉe la mort-angoro rapidu savi min:
La brakojn etenditajn en kruca malhonor'
Mi vidu malfermitajn por preni min al glor'!
