The head that once was crowned


    • The head that once was crowned with thorns 
    • Is crowned with glory now; 
    • A royal diadem adorns 
    • The mighty Victor's brow. 

    • The highest place that heaven affords 
    • Is His by sovereign right, 
    • The King of kings, the Lord of lords, 
    • And heaven's eternal light. 

    • The joy of all who dwell above, 
    • The joy of all below, 
    • To whom He manifests His love, 
    • And grants His name to know. 

    • To them the cross, with all its shame, 
    • With all its grace, is given; 
    • Their name an everlasting name, 
    • Their joy the joy of heaven. 

    • They suffer with their Lord below, 
    • They reign with Him above; 
    • Their profit and their joy to know 
    • The mystery of His love. 

    • The cross He bore is life and health, 
    • Though shame and death to Him; 
    • His people's hope, His people's wealth, 
    • Their everlasting theme
