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
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
3
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
4
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
5
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
