Crown of Thorns

1992 © by Anna Marie Isgro


As a little girl I took a look in my family's Good Book

And found a picture of a Man with a crown of thorns and pierced hands.


The crown of thorns caught my sight.  It grabbed my soul with its might.

Curious as I can be, The Holy One was reaching me.


Crown of thorns piercing deep!  Your blood-stained head for our sanity.

Such pain to bear all our griefs and cares; crown of thorns piercing for me.


As a teen I went through life.  After school and work I saw my momma cry.

But I found the strength to pull me through from the Unseen Hand of the Risen Jew.


The crown of thorns stayed in my sight.  It kept my soul with its might.

Curious as I could be, The Holy One kept reaching me.


As a woman I have felt the scar of life's hard lessons that seem to mar

Innocence and joy restored to me by The Man with the crown of thorns at Calvary.


With the crown of thorns in my sight, it cleansed my soul with its might.

Curious as I could be, The Holy One is still keeping me.


Crown of thorns piercing deep!  Your blood-stained Head for our sanity!

Such pain to bear all our griefs and cares, crown of thorns piercing for me!


With the crown of thorns in my sight, it cleansed my soul with its might.

Curious as I can be, The Holy One is still keeping me!
