The Man Who Wore The Scarlet Purple Robe

My roots are in Southern Gospel and I had not heard this before. I heard it on Bluegrass PBS on the radio as I drove to Wal-Mart Saturday morning. 

Words Below

The Man Who Wore The scarlet Purple Robe by Ralph Stanley

There's a story so unkind in the Holy book we find
And it tells how Jesus stood alone one day
False accused and there condemned yet they found no fault with Him
The man who wore the scarlet purple robe

   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 piercing thorns and blood stained red
   His raiment was a scarlet purple robe

In the common judgment hall he was mocked and scorned by all
And a tear of sorrow fell upon His cheek
Soldiers of the wicked man smote Him with their evil hand
The Man who wore the scarlet purple robe

Words of truth that day were plain from the lips of Pilot came
In this man I find no reason He should die
But the multitudes replied let Him now be crucified
The man who wore the scarlet purple robe

Oh the River Of Jordan is many miles away
And this mighty river I may never see
But I'll find myself an alter in an old fashioned church

Red Hibiscus Perfect for December

Our back yard is decorating itself for the holidays.

Did you hear about the flower arrangers children? 

One is a budding genius and the other is a blooming idiot.

Why did the butterfly get a cell phone?
 She wanted to cauliflower.

What were King Tut’s favorite flowers? Chrysanthemummies! - See more at:
