  • In a crucifixion ecstasy
    Lying cross chequed in agony
    Stigmata bleed continuously
    Holes in head, hands, feet, and weep for me

    Stigmata oh you sordid sight
    Stigmata in your splintered plight
    Look into your crimson orifice
    In holy remembrance
    In scarlet bliss

    In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
    In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
    In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
    In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
    Father, son, and holy ghost
    Stigmata martyr Writer/s: DANIEL GASTON ASH, DAVID JAY, KEVIN HASKINS, PETER JOHN MURPHY
