Crown of Thorns by For Today

We crown Him with a crown of thorns [x2]

This is the end of a life that's been poured out for all mankind

In suffering, manifest glory has come at the fullness of time

King of Kings

Beaten and broken down why would he live like a servant

King of Kings

Descending lower now

Why should he die like a slave

The proud will be humbled, the meek will inherit the earth

The last will be first to inherit the earth

I know down is the way up so master show me how to serve

The last will be first to inherit the earth

The less will be first to inherit the earth

It should have been me

With the nails through my hands and feet

Facing the wrath of God

It should have been me

Left to pay for my sin forsaken

But in the blood I stand here

It should have been me

Born to die

He bore the fire of God's holy wrath on his shoulders

Born to die

I watched Him pour out his life as a ransom for all

And as he carried His cross on his back

Beaten and bloody, I saw myself there too

Because I've been broken by a world that hates me

But I'm not alone anymore (alone no more)

No one can take His life; He laid it down for me

That twisted wreath of thorns, yeah He took that crown for me

Then after three days, out of the ground for me

He overcame it all!

Now I live to serve Him

With stripes on his back

Betrayed by the ones he loves so perfectly

We spit in his face and we crowned Him

We crown Him with a crown of thorns [x4]
