"Jesus Shall Reign"
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does its successive journeys run;
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
Through Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His name, like sweet perfume shall rise
With ev’ry morning sacrifice,
With ev’ry morning sacrifice.
Let ev’ry creature rise and bring
Peculiar praises to our King,
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeats the loud Amen,
And earth repeats the loud Amen!
People and realms of ev’ry tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His Name,
Their early blessings on His Name.
Blessings abound where’er He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest,
And all the sons of want are blest!
