A Crown Of Thorns
There was no crown for Him of silver or of gold,
There was no diadem for Him to hold;
But blood adorned His brow, and proud its stain He bore,
And sinners gave to Him the crown He wore.
A rugged cross became His throne,
His kingdom was in hearts alone;
He wrote His love in crimson red,
And wore the thorns upon His head.
He did not reign upon a throne of ivory,
But died upon the cross of Calvary;
For sinners there He counted all He owned but loss,
And He surveyed His kingdom from a cross.
No purple robe He wore, his bleeding wounds to hide,
But stripes upon His back He wore with pride;
And from the wounds there flowed a crimson, cleansing stream,
That was a cover for the soul unclean.
