     14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.(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.
