1 My Savior wore a crown of thorns
Upon the cross of Calvary,
That I might wear a crown of light,
And dwell with Him eternally.

Refrain:
A crown of thorns my Savior wore,
For me the sin and shame He bore;
A broken, contrite heart I bring—
He died for me, my Lord and King.

2 My Savior wore a crown of thorns!
The cruel stripes on Him were laid;
For me He suffered scorn and shame,
For all my sins the ransom paid. [Refrain]

3 My Savior wore a crown of thorns!
Tho’ long my heart His will defied,
I give my life, my soul to Him;
For me my Lord was crucified. [Refrain]
