    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
