#62: Crown Him with Many Crowns


(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Crown Him with many crowns,

The Lamb upon His throne:

Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns

All music but its own!

Awake, my soul, and sing

Of Him who die for thee,

And hail Him as thy matchless King

Thru all eternity.

2

Crown Him the Lord of love:

Behold His hands and side —

Rich wounds, yet visible above,

In beauty glorified;

No angel in the sky

Can fully bear that sight,

But downward bends his wond’ring eye

At mysteries so bright.

3

Crown His the Lod of life:

Who triumphed o’er the grave,

Who rose victorious to the strife

For those He came to save;

His glories now we sing,

Who died and rose on high,

Who died eternal life to bring

And lives that death may die.

4

Crown Him the Lord of heav’n:

One with the Father known,

One with the Spirit thru Him giv’n

From yonder glorious throne.

To Thee be endless praise,

For Thou for us hast died;

Be Thou, O Lord, thru endless days

Adored and magnified.
