#141: Look, Ye Saints! the Sign Is Glorious

Standard

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

1

Look, ye saints! the sight is glorious; See the Man of Sorrows now;

From the fight returned victorious, Ev’ry knee to Him shall bow;

Crown Him! crown Him! Crowns become the Victor’s brow.

2

Crown the Savior! angels, crown Him! Rich the trophies Jesus brings;

In the seat of pow’r enthrone Him, While the vault of heaven rings:

Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown the Savior King of kings.

3

Sinners in the derision crowed Him, Mocking thus the Savior’s claim;

Saints and angels crowd around Him, Own His title, praise His name:

Crown Him! crown Him! Spread abroad the Victory’s fame!

4

Hark! those bursts of acclamation! Hark! those loud triumphant chords!

Jesus takes the highest station — O what joy the sight affords!

Crown Him! crown Him! King of kings and Lord of lords!
