|Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art Thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My voice. (John 18:37)
|Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. (John 18:40)
|Anointed King, with glory crowned,
Rightful heir and Lord of all!
Once rejected, scorned, disowned,
E’en by those Thou camest to call:
Thee we honor,
Thee adore —
Glorious now and evermore.
