285. Jesus, Thy Head, Once Crowned With Thorns

by T. Kelly
Jesus, Thy head, once crowned with thorns,
Is crowned with glory now;
Heaven's royal diadem adorns
The mighty Victor's brow.
John 19:2; Hebrews 2:7,9; Revelation 6:2
Thou glorious light of courts above,
Joy of the saints below,
To us still manifest Thy love,
That we its depths may know.
Revelation 2:23; Ephesians 3:17-19
To us Thy cross with all its shame,
With all its grace be given;
Though earth disowns Thy lowly name,
God honors it in heaven.
Hebrews 12:2; 1 Peter 4:14; Revelation 19:16
Who suffer with Thee, Lord, below,
Shall reign with Thee above;
Then let it be our joy to know
This way of peace and love.
2 Timothy 2:12
To us Thy cross is life and health;
'Twas shame and death to Thee;
Our present glory, joy and wealth,
Our everlasting stay.
Hebrews 12:2; Philippians 2:8; Galatians 6:14
