The Scarlet Purple Robe
      (Stanley Brothers)

Theres a story so unkind
In the Holy Book we find
It tells me how Jesus stood
      Alone one day
False accused & then condemned
Yet they found no fault with Him
The man who wore that scarlet
      Purple robe

Chorus:
Purple robe my Savior wore
Oh, the shame for me He bore
As he stood alone,
      Forsaken on that day
And they placed upon His head
Crown of thorns, blood stained red
His rainment was that scarlet
      Purple robe

In the common judgment hall
He was mocked & scorned by all
And a tear of sorrow fell
      Upon His cheeks
Solders of the wicked men
Smote Him with their evil hand
The man who wore that scarlet
      Purple robe

Words of truth & they were plain
From the lips of Pilate came
In this man I find
      No reason He should die
But the multitude then cried
Let Him now be crucified
The man who wore that scarlet
      Purple robe
