They borrowed a bed to lay His head
   At Jesus’ incarnation;
They borrowed the colt on which He rode
   Midst shouts of jubilation;
But the crown He wore, and the cross He bore
   Were His own.

He borrowed the bread when the crowd He fed
   On the grassy mountainside;
He borrowed the fish when the people did wish
   Their hunger satisfied;
But the crown He wore, and the cross He bore
   Were His own

He borrowed the ship in which to sit
   To teach the crowd that pressed;
He borrowed pots which were filled to their tops
   And made wine, the very best;
But the crown He wore, and the cross He bore
   Were His own.

He borrowed a room on the way to the tomb
   The Passover feast to eat;
They borrowed a cave—for Him a grave;
   They borrowed the linen sheet.
But the crown He wore, and the cross He bore
   Were His own.

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

“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.” (1 Peter 2:24)
