The Head That Once Was Crowned With Thorns

The Head That Once Was Crowned With Thorns Lyrics

1 The head that once was crowned with thorns
is crowned with glory now;
a royal diadem adorns
the mighty victor’s brow.

2 The highest place that heav’n affords
is his, is his by right,
the King of kings and Lord of lords,
and heav’n’s eternal light:

3 The joy of all who dwell above,
the joy of all below
to whom he manifests his love
and grants his name to know.

4 To them the cross, with all its shame,
with all its grace, is giv’n;
their name, an everlasting name,
their joy, the joy of heav’n.

5 They suffer with the Lord below,
they reign with him above,
their profit and their joy to know
the myst’ry of his love.

6 The cross he bore is life and health,
though shame and death to him:
his people’s hope, his people’s wealth,
their everlasting theme.

The Head That Once Was Crowned with Thorns Hymn History

‘The Head That Once Was Crowned with Thorns’ is a hymn that was composed by Thomas Kelly in 1820.

Thomas Kelly was a son of an Irish judge who was born on 13th July 1769. He entered the priesthood in 1792, the year he took Holy Orders.

Unfortunately, after this ordination, he fell out with the archbishop who prohibited him and his friend Rowland Hill from preaching in Dublin.

As a result, he founded his own church and had places of worship at Athy, Wexford and other places.

He was known to a practical man of faith who attended to people’s other needs besides their spiritual needs.

The poor people loved him very much as he cared for them.
