A Crown of Thorns
Ira Stanphill ©1952 New Spring

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.

CHORUS
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

There is another version that Jimmie Davis Sang
It starts out likethis:  A CROWN OF THORNS WAS PLACED ON HIS HEAD,
HE HUNG ON THE CROSS UNTIL HE WAS DEAD, THE SKY WAS DARK WITH A RAGING STORM, WHEN THEY CROWNED THE KING OF KINGS WITH A CROWN OF THORNS. i'LL TRY TO GET IT IF THIS IS THE ONE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!
