1 See! where in shame the God of glory hangs,
All bathed in His own blood:
See! how those nails pierce with a thousand pangs
Those hands so good.
2 Th’All Holy, as a minister of ill,
Betwixt two thieves they place;
Oh, deed unjust! yet such the cruel will
Of Israel’s race.
3 Pale grows His face, and fix’d His languid eye;
His wearied head He bends;
And rich in merits, forth with one loud cry
His Spirit sends.
4 O heart more hard than iron! not to weep
At this; thy sin it was
That wrought His death; of all these torments deep
Thou art the cause.
5 Praise, honour, glory be through endless time
To th’everlasting God;
Who wash’d away our deadly stain of crime
In His own blood.

Aspice, infami Deus ipse ligno. [Passiontide.] In the Appendix to the Roman Breviary, Bologna, 1827, it is the Hymn at Matins for the Feast of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be observed on the Tuesday after Sexagesima Sunday. It is now adopted for use in England on the Friday after Sexagesima Sunday; by the Benedictine Order on Tuesday. See Aspice ut Verbum Patris.
