إكليله مضفور

1 إكليلُهُ مَضفورٌ
بالشوكِ مِن أجلي
يُدمَى به جبينٌ
فاقَ سنا النُّبْلِ
قد وضَعَتْه أيدٍ
أثيمةٌ للعارْ
تاجاً لرأسِ الفادي
ربِّ السماءِ البارْ

2 بالعارِ ترضى طوعاً
وألمِ الصليبْ
دِماك تجري طُهراً
للصفحِ يا حبيبْ
آلامُك العظيمَهْ
تُخَففُ الأثقالْ
وروحُك الرحيمَهْ
تُحيي بنا الآمالْ

3 تحت الصليب أجثو
لأرفعَ الصلاهْ
مخلصي فداني
بسفكِهِ دِماهْ
يسوعُ قد هداني
في ظلمةِ الوُجودْ
بصلبِهِ أحياني
ففُزتُ بالخلودْ

The tune HERZLICH TUT MICH VERLANGEN has been associated with Gerhardt's text ["O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden"] since they were first published together in 1656. The tune's first association with a sacred text was its attachment in 1913 [sic: should read 1613] to Christoph Knoll's funeral text "Herzl…
