16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, 17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. 18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. 19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

     22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone; 23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:) 24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.(KJV)

1. The Head that once was crowned with thorns 
Is crowned with glory now; 
A royal diadem adorns 
The mighty Victor’s brow. 

2. The highest place that heaven affords 
Is His, is His by right, 
The King of kings and Lord of lords, 
And heaven’s eternal Light; 

3. The Joy of all who dwell above, 
The Joy of all below 
To whom He manifests His love 
And grants His name to know. 

4. To them the cross, with all its shame, 
With all its grace, is given; 
Their name an everlasting name, 
Their joy the joy of heaven. 

5. They suffer with their Lord below, 
They reign with Him above, 
Their profit and their joy to know 
The mystery of His love. 

6. The cross He bore is life and health, 
Though shame and death to Him: 
His people’s hope, His people’s wealth, 
Their everlasting theme.
