once was, but now is

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

The highest place that Heav’n affords
Belongs to Him by right;
The King of kings and Lord of lords,
And Heaven’s eternal Light.

Thomas Kelly; 
Hymns on Var­i­ous Pass­ag­es of Scrip­ture, fifth edi­tion 
(Dub­lin, Ire­land: 1820).
