#142: Jesus Shall Reign

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


Jesus shall reign where’er the sun

Does his successive journeys run,

His kingdom spreads from shore to shore

Till moons shall wax and wane no more.


From north to south the princes meet

To pay their homage at His feet,

While western empires own their Lord

And savage tribes attend His word.


To Him shall endless prayer be made

And endless praises crown His head;

His name like sweet perfume shall rise

With ev’ry morning sacrifice.


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.
