Printer-friendly version
CGS No.: 

Verse 1
Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more

Verse 2
For Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice

Verse 3
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their young hosannas to His name

Verse 4
Blessing abound where'er He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary finds eternal rest;
And all the sons of want are blest

Verse 5
Let every creature rise, and bring
Its grateful honours to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth prolong the joyful strain
