From: "Nancy S. Davis" [email@example.com] by Odell McLeod copywrighted 1952 Acuff-Rose Indiana State University Archives PURPLE ROBE Verse 1: G C G It's a story so unkind in the Holy Book we find, D And it tells how Jesus stood alone one day. G False accused and there condemned, C G Yet they found no fault with Him. D G The man who wore the Scarlet Purple Robe. Chorus: G C G Purple Robe my Savior wore,oh the shame for me He bore, D as He stood alone forsaken, on that day. G C And they placed upon His head, piercing thorns G of blood stained red. D G His raiment's was a Scarlet Purple Robe. Verse 2: G C In the common judgement hall, He was mocked G and scorned by all. D And the tears of sorrow fell upon His cheek, G C G Soldiers of the wicked man, smote Him with their evil hand D G The man who wore the scarlet purple robe. Verse 3: G C G Words of truth,that day was plain,from the lips of Pilate came. D In this man, I find no reason He should die. G C G But the multitude then cried,"Let Him now be crucified," D G The Man who wore the Scarlet Purple Robe.Home
