    Video of Catholic hymn, “O Sacred Head Surrounded.”
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XppXi_jZKWk
    The hymn is based on a medieval Latin poem, Salve Mundi Salutare, with stanzas addressing to Christ’s head, and begins, “Salve caput cruentatum.” The poem is attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1154).
    Lyrics:
    O sacred Head surrounded
    By crown of piercing thorn!
    O bleeding head so wounded
    Reviled and put to scorn!
    Death’s pallid hue comes o’er Thee,
    the glow of life decays,
    Yet angel hosts adore Thee,
    and tremble as they gaze
    In this, Thy bitter passion,
    Good shepherd, think of me
    with Thy most sweet compassion,
    Unworthy though I be,
    Beneath Thy cross abiding,
    forever would I rest
    In Thy dear love confiding,
    And with Thy presence blest.
