Looking for the Lyrics to a hymn that starts with "I wasn't there when......."
A line from the chorus is "But I'll be there when they crown Him King of Glory".
Thanks

This is called One Drop of Blood.  If you want the chords, I have those also.

(ch)
One drop of blood that day
was enough for humanity,
on a hill the victory wrought,
the price was paid with His precious Blood. 

(vs 1)
I wasn’t there when the nails ripped through His hands,
I wasn’t there when the Blood fell to the sand,
I wasn’t there when they hung Him on the tree,
but I’ll be there when they bow at His feet. 

(Ch)

(Vs 2)
I wasn’t there when they pierced His precious side,
I wasn’t there when He hung His head and died,
I wasn’t there when they hung Him on the tree,
but I’ll be there when they bow at His feet.

Let me dig them out!  I played this last night at church, but I don't have my music with me, so I'll post them tomorrow. 
(Still me, but I've registered now.)

hI TERRI:
I was looking for this for a friend and he thinks this isn't the one.
The one he is looking for had a line in the chorus " but i"ll be there when they crown Him King of glory."
He thinks it is a by the Cathedrals.
Thanks
Lester

Did you look at their website?  This page seems to have lyrics to a lot of their songs, so you might check it out.

Not quite sure how you have a quartet with 5 people, though. 

The other song, however, is awesome, and I highly recommend it.  If anyone wants it, I can still post the chords.

Ibut I'll be there when they crown him king of glory
and I'll be there when they sing redeemption song
and I'll be there when the saints from every nation
as we sing??? around God's throne

I wasn't there when they took him body down
and i wasn't there when they laid him in the tomb
  sorry i can't remember the rest maybe this will help.

Angelwings:
That is the words. Do you have major guitar chords?
Is there somewhere on the web I can hear the tune?

If you find the words I would like to get them.
I use to sing this song years ago. and I can't remember all the words.

some of the words is

i wasn't there when they led him to pilots hall
and I wasn't there when they took his body down
i wasn't there when they placed him in the tomb
???????
I wish I could remember this song for you and me.
