Verse 1
The head that once was crowned with thorns 
is crowned with glory now; 
a royal diadem adorns 
the mighty Victor's brow. 
Verse 2
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: 
Verse 3
The joy of all who dwell above, 
the joy of all below, 
to whom he manifests his love, 
and grants his name to know. 
Verse 4
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. 
Verse 5
They suffer with the Lord below, 
they reign with him above; 
their profit and their joy to know 
the myst'ry of his love. 
Verse 6
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.
