Christ Crowned with Thorns
Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528)


Have you read the story of the cross,
Where Jesus bled and died,
Where your debt was paid by the precious blood
That flowed from His wounded side?


He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart.

Have you read how they placed the crown of thorns
Upon His kingly brow,
How He cried, They know not what they do;
O Father, forgive them now


Have you read how the dying thief was saved
While hanging on the tree,
When he looked with pleading eyes and said,
O Lord, remember me?


Have you read how in anguish He cried aloud
And died on Calvary?
Have you ever said, I thank Thee, Lord,
For giving Thy life for me
