Some of the most beautiful things in life..

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.
