339. The Head That Once Was Crowned

1 The head that once was crowned with thorns
is crowned with glory now;
a royal diadem adorns
the mighty victor’s brow.

2 The highest place that heaven affords
is his, is his by right,
the King of kings and Lord of lords,
and heaven’s eternal light.

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.

4 To them the cross with all its shame,
with all its grace, is given;
their name, an everlasting name,
their joy, the joy of heaven.
