"The Cross Was His Own"


They borrowed a bed to lay His head
When Christ the LORD came down;
They borrowed the ass in the mountain pass
For Him to ride to town;
But the crown that He wore,
And the cross that He bore ...
Were His own.

He borrowed the bread when the crowd He fed
On the grassy mountain side;
He borrowed the dish of broken fish
With which He satisfied;
But the crown that He wore
And the cross that He bore
Were His own.

He borrowed the ship in which to sit
To teach the multitude;
He borrowed the nest in which to rest,
He had never a home so rude;
But the crown that He wore
And the cross that He bore
Were His own.

He borrowed a room on the way to the Tomb
The Passover lamb to eat;
They borrowed the cave; for Him a grave;
They borrowed the winding sheet.
But the crown that He wore
And the cross that He bore
Were His own.

The thorns on His head were worn in
my stead,
For
me the Saviour died.
For guilt of
my sin the nails drove in
When Him they crucified;
Though the crown that He wore
And the cross that He bore
Were His own--
They rightly were mine!

1 Peter 2:24
"Who His own self bare our sins in His own body
on the tree that we, being dead to sins, should
live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye
were healed"


John 10:15 
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the
Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
