‘O, Sacred Head Surrounded’

Lyrics by St. Bernard of Clairvaux, music by Johann Sebastian Bach–next on the list of Your Favorite Hymns, O, Sacred Head Surrounded.

Hard to believe this was one of the songs in our seventh-grade concert.

By Request, ‘O Sacred Head Surrounded’

Current events aside, this week features Good Friday and that’s important.

Requested by Phoebe: O Sacred Head Surrounded, sung by the choir at St. Michael’s Church in Stillwater, Minnesota.

Lyrics from the Middle Ages (author not known for certain), music by Hans Leo Hassler, harmonized by J.S. Bach.

Our seventh grade class sang this in our spring concert.

By Request, ‘O Sacred Head Surrounded’

We have a hymn request from Phoebe, to open this season of Lent–O Sacred Head Surrounded, attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux.

Would you believe we sang this in seventh grade, in public school, as part of our spring concert?

It was better then. Come, Lord Jesus, come.
