The Lord abides upon my head like a crown (ode 01)

1000 Songs

Text[edit | edit source]

"The Lord abides upon my head like a crown and I shall never be apart from Him. Woven for me is a crown of truth, and it has caused Your branches to blossom within me. For it is unlike a withered crown, which fails to bloom. But Your presence shines over my life, and your crown has blossomed upon my head. Your fruits are full and perfect, filled near to bursting with Your salvation." http://www.scriptoriumnovum.com/o.html
