199 ~ 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, is His by right; The King of kings, and 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.
