Garden Rose Music

BLOOD WAS ON THE CROWN OF THORNS
Words by Mary Rose Jensen

Blood was on the crown of thorns when Christ endured the cross.
Blood was on the crown of thorns, flesh was bruised and skin was torn
When our Lord endured the cross.

Thieves were hung on either side when Christ endured the cross.
Thieves were hung on either side, one would rise, the other died
When our Lord endured the cross.

Those who saw Him mocked His name when Christ endured the cross.
Those who saw Him mocked His name wagging heads at all the shame
When our Lord endured the cross.

Likewise, elders, priests and scribes when Christ endured the cross.
Likewise, elders, priests and scribes hurled their insults as He died
When our Lord endured the cross.

All apostles ran that day when Christ endured the cross.
All apostles ran that day, women watched from far away
When our Lord endured the cross.

Darkness covered all the land when Christ endured the cross.
Darkness covered all the land, quaking of the earth began
When our Lord endured the cross.

Soldiers pierced Him in the side when Christ endured the cross.
Soldiers pierced Him in the side as the scriptures prophesied
When our Lord endured the cross.

Then the temple veil was torn when Christ endured the cross.
Then the temple veil was torn, letting us be with our Lord
When our Lord endured the cross.

Then the graves were opened wide when Christ endured the cross.
Then the graves were opened wide, letting out the saints inside

Those who saw exclaimed in fear when Christ endured the cross.
Those who saw exclaimed in fear, "Surely God's own Son was here."
When our Lord endured the cross.
