Full Text

1 Behold the Saviour silent stand
Ere slain on Calvary!
A crown of thorns His brow adorns,
Yet King of heav’n is He!

Refrain:
The mighty King of heav’n is He
Who dies for you and me!
He suffers loss, He bears the cross,
He dies for you and me!

2 In purple robe is He arrayed
Ere yet the deed is done;
And soldiers stand on ev’ry hand
To guard the Gentle One! [Refrain]

3 The host of heav’n He could command
From them to set Him free;
Yet, O He proves to us His love
Be death on Calvary! [Refrain]
