#142: Jesus Shall Reign

Standard

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

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.
