John 2:18–22 (Listen)

18 So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple,1 and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.


[1] 2:20 Or This temple was built forty-six years ago


Hymn: TLH 341: Crown Him with Many Crowns Organ Audio

1. Crown Him with many crowns 
The Lamb upon His throne; 
Hark how the heavenly anthem drowns 
All music but its own. 
Awake, my soul, and sing 
Of Him who died for thee 
And hail Him as thy matchless King 
Through all eternity. 

2. Crown Him the Virgin’s Son, 
The God incarnate born, 
Whose arm those crimson trophies won 
Which now His brow adorn; 
Fruit of the mystic rose, 
As of that rose the stem; 
The root whence mercy ever flows, 
The Babe of Bethlehem. 

3. Crown Him the Lord of Love. 
Behold His hands and side, 
Rich wounds, yet visible above, 
In beauty glorified. 
No angel in the sky 
Can fully bear that sight, 
But downward bends his wondering eye 
At mysteries so bright! 

4. Crown Him the Lord of Life 
Who triumphed o’er the grave 
And rose victorious in the strife 
For those He came to save. 
His glories now we sing 
Who died and rose on high, 
Who died eternal life to bring 
And lives that death may die. 

5. Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, 
Enthroned in worlds above, 
Crown Him the King to whom is given 
The wondrous name of Love. 
Crown Him with many crowns 
As thrones before Him fall; 
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns 
For He is King of all.
