1 Today you have come to the valley of choice,
Today to your heart speaks the Saviour’s own voice,
“Tis your hand must lay the wreathed crown on my brow,
Or drive cruel nails thro’ my pleading hands now.”
Crown Him or crucify Him, which shall it be?
This is the choice from which you cannot flee;
Crown Him your King, or most surely ‘tis true,
You crucify Jesus, your Saviour anew.
2 Do you say with the Christ you have nothing to do,
That the crown and the cross have no meaning for you?
Yet the choice you have made, and your Saviour nailed then
To a cross of neglect where He suffers again. [Refrain]
3 Do you claim that you cannot believe on His word,
As a myth count the sweet gospel story you’ve heard?
Bitter then is His cup you have filled to the brim,
Unbelief is the cross where you crucify Him. [Refrain]
4 Of dark Calvary’s hill think you lightly, nor care
That He suffered and died, that He died for you there?
Then ‘tis truly His heart that you pierce with the sword,
On a cross of ingratitude nailing your Lord. [Refrain]
