The Head That Once Was Crowned / The head that once was crowned with thorns [#TheHeadThatOnceWasCrowned #HeadThatOnceWasCrowned #ThatOnceWasCrowned]

Song written by:
Original in English: Thomas Kelly (Dublin, Ireland, July 13, 1769 – May 14, 1854)

1
The head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now
A royal diadem adorns
The mighty victor’s brow

2
The highest place that Heav’n affords
Belongs to Him by right
The King of kings and Lord of lords
And Heaven’s eternal Light

3
The joy of all who dwell above
The joy of all below
To whom He manifests His love
And grants His name to know

4
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

5
They suffer with their Lord below
They reign with Him above
Their profit and their joy to know
The mystery of His love

6
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

The Head That Once Was Crowned / The head that once was crowned with thorns [#TheHeadThatOnceWasCrowned #HeadThatOnceWasCrowned #ThatOnceWasCrowned]
