Some of the most beautiful things in life have thorns…
A hymn of the Crown of Thorns
Christ’s peerless Crown is pictured in
The figures of the Law.
The Ram entangled in the Thorns;
The Bush which Moses saw,
The rainbow girding round the ark
The table’s crown of gold;
The incense that in waving wreaths
Around the Altar rolled.
Hail! Circlet dear! that didst the pangs
Of dying Jesus feel,
Thou dost the brightest gems outshine.
And all the stars excel
Praise honor, to the Fathers be
And sole begotten Son;
Praise to the Spirit Paraclete
While endless ages run. Amen.
