O Sacred Head

O Sacred Head, v9

From O Sacred Head, Now Wounded, TLH #172, verse 9 (Gerhardt) -- Also in St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244

My Savior, be Thou near me
When death is at my door;
Then let Thy presence cheer me,
Forsake me nevermore!
When soul and body languish,
Oh, leave me not alone,
But take away mine anguish
By virtue of Thine own!
