Hymn/Song Information

The head that once was crowned with




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 and Lord of lords,
He reigns in perfect 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.


---Alternative verses---


Thou glorious light of courts above,
Joy of the saints below,
To us still manifest Thy love,
That we its depths may know.


Delight of all who dwell above,
The joy of saints below,
To us still manifest Thy love,
That we its depths may know.


To us the cross, with all its shame,
With all its grace, is given:
Thou earth disowns Thy lowly Name,
All worship it in heaven.


To us Thy cross with all its shame,
With all its grace be given;
Though earth disowns Thy lowly name.
God honours it in heaven.


Who suffer with Thee, Lord, below;
Shall reign with Thee above;
Then let it be our joy to know
The way of peace and love.


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.


To us Thy cross is life and health,
Though shame and death to Thee;
Our present glory, joy and wealth,
Our everlasting stay.


To us Thy cross is life and health;
'Twas shame and death to Thee;
Our present glory, joy and wealth,
Our everlasting stay.
