“O Sacred Head, Now Wounded” is an electronic song using some techniques from dubstep and electronica to reset the text to this old hymn. Staying true to the meaning of the text, it has a mournful sound while clearly rejoicing in the fact that our salvation comes through the suffering that Jesus Christ went through for us. Play on YouTube.

O sacred Head, now wounded, With grief and shame weighed down,
Now scornfully surrounded With thorns, Thy only crown,
How art Thou pale with anguish, With sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish Which once was bright as morn!

What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered Was all for sinners’ gain:
Mine, mine was the transgression, But Thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior! ‘Tis I deserve Thy place;
Look on me with Thy favor, Vouchsafe to me Thy grace.

What language shall I borrow To thank Thee, dearest Friend,
For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever! And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never Outlive my love to Thee!
