Hymn No. 197 from the hymnal of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints followed by BVW 727.

Words to traditional Christian hymn by Karen Lynn Davidson, b, 1943:

O Savior, thou who wearest a crown of piercing thorn,
The pain thou meekly bearest, weigh'd down by grief and scorn.
The soldiers mock and flail thee; for drink they give thee gall;
Upon the cross they nail thee to die, O King of All.

No creature is so lowly, no sinner so depraved,
But feels thy presence holy and thru thy love is saved.
Tho craven friends betray thee, they feel thy love's embrace;
The very foes who slay thee have access to thy grace.

Thy sacrifice transcended the mortal law's demand;
Thy mercy is extended to ev'ry time and land.
No more can Satan harm us, tho long the fight my be,
Nor fear of death alarm us; we live, o Lord, thru thee.

What praises can we offer to thank thee, Lord most high?
In our place thou didst suffer; in our place thou didst die,
By heaven's plan appointed, to ransom us, our King.
O Jesus, the anointed, to thee our love we bring!
