Emmylou Harris - Satan's Jewel Crown Lyrics




Now if I were a queen and a ruler of nations
With diamonds and jewels profound
Well, I'd rather know that I had salvation
Than to know my reward
Would be Satan's jewel crown

Satan's jewel crown
I've worn it so long but God for my
Soul has reached down
His love set me free
He made me His own, and helped me cast off
Satan's jewel crown

Oh, the life that I live so sinful and needless
Drinking and running around
All the things that I do for the love of the devil
I know my reward
Will be Satan's jewel crown

Satan's jewel crown
I've worn it so long
But God for my soul has reached down
His love set me free
He made me His own, and helped me cast off
Satan's jewel crown

    John Starling RIP. I remember Emmylou singing this in Boston in the early 1970s. Joe Val did great version, too, as well as the Louvin Brothers. Beautiful gospel songs like this are almost enough to make you a believer, almost.

  2. Peter Degroot

    Everything she sings is perfect

  3. Celica Bojorge

    Beautiful song.

  4. Philip HENRY

    All Emmylou's songs are magnificent.
    She is a real fairy.

  5. Sven Semencic

    Wondreful.

  6. Theresa Engman

    The Starlings had a quite an influence on Emmy Lou. After owning many of her albums, it seems that the Starlings had a lot of interest in Emmy Lou. Joe Engman.

    If he can Save me, +HE+ can save anyone! PRAISE HIS BLESSED NAME!!!

    Making Peace with God, includes making Amends
    to those you have wronged
    Like Penance... How will Musicians and Actors return Innocence to the young they Corrupted?

    So beautiful. I know this and others albums from long time ago. But Satan's Jewel has been my favorite even in vinyl since i heard it first time. Thanks to BipolarForJesus that include words. It's even better for us non english speaking people.

  11. Robert Lindsay

    First time I heard this was RoyAcuff;:but I like hers much more....Just can not get over sweet voice

  12. Ann Carr

    heard it by a family quartet at local bluegrass festival ashland ky, 1970. irradicable memory

  13. Ann Carr

    should always be sung as trio or quartet; solo loses SJC's essence

  14. Alph Vermeulen

    Loved the version that she did with the Whites ,unfortunately it disappeared from YouTube.

  15. Thomas Owens

    I miss my family and been away for 2years and my aunt barbrae. bonawitz GERMAN PHILA PA LOVE you

    WAYFARING STRANGER IS MY FAVORITE, SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SONG..GOING THERE TO SEE MY MOTHER, SHE SAID SHE WOULD MEET ME WHEN I COME.....

  18. Justin Last-name

    Great song, but this is playing way too slow... like playing through an old portable cassette player with low batteries...

  19. BipolarForJesus

    Hi Pamela, you are right! This a 'heart-touching' song & I also play it often! I also have the original record & jacket! Emmylou is such a beautiful gentle creature. I have seen her 3 times in concert & she is as lovely in person as is her voice, anywhere you hear her singing her haunting & smooth melodies! Thanks for writing to me, & am glad you enjoyed my video! God bless you, Pam! Louise
