In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: The Head That Once Was Crowned with Thorns


The Head That Once Was Crowned with Thorns
ST. MAGNUS

image

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 heav’n affords
is His, is His by right,
the King of kings and Lord of lords,
and heav’n’s eternal 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 giv’n,
their name, an everlasting name,
their joy, the joy of heav’n.

They suffer with their Lord below,
they reign with Him above,
their profit and their joy to know
the myst’ry 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.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, recently published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
