A Crown of Thorns


     D                               A7   D                          G   D 

1) There was no crown for Him of sil - ver or of  gold;

2) He  did not reign  up - on  a throne  of  i vo ry

3) No  pur-ple robe  He wore, His bleeding wounds to hide;


                            A7   Bm   A7       F#m   Aaug   D

1) there was   no  di a - dem for Him  to   hold.

2) but  died   up -on  the cross of Cal -va  -ry.

3) but stripes up -on His back He wore with pride.


                     A7  D         A7   D                                      G   D                  

1) But blood a-dorned  His brow and proud His stain He bore;

2) For sin-ners there, He count - ed  all   He owned  but loss; 

3) And from the wounds there flowed a crimson, clean-ing stream,


                            A7    Bm  A7          F#m    A7   D

1) and sin - ners gave  to  Him the crown He wore.

2) and He sur-veyed His king-dom from a cross.

3) that was a cov- er for the soul un -clean.


                G                          D                                 A7       Bm       A    D                                 

A rugged cross became His throne; His kingdom was in hearts a - lone


      A7      D    G                       D                            A7                       D     

He wrote His love in crimson red; And wore the thorns upon His head.
