Description

SATB with Solo, and Organ. Text by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), music by Robert Pearsall (1795-1856). A wonderful text and beautiful tune for Lent and Holy Week artfully arranged.

Once I ached for thy dear sake:
Wilt thou cause Me now to ache?
Once I bled for thee in pain:
Wilt thou rend my heart again?
Crown of thorns and shameful tree.
Bitter death I bore for thee,
Bore My Cross to carry thee,
And wilt thou have nought of Me?
