(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Hark! ten thousand harps and voices Sound the note of praise above;
Jesus reigns, and heav’n rejoices — Jesus reigns, the God of love:
See, He sits on yonder throne — Jesus rules the world alone.
Alleluia! alleluia! Alleluia! Amen
Jesus, hail! whose glory brightens All above, and gives it worth;
Lord of life, Thy smile enlightens, Cheers and charms Thy saints on earth:
When we think of love like Thine, Lord, we own it love divine.
King of glory, reign forever — Thin an everlasting crown;
Nothing from Thy love shall sever Those whom Thou hast made Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace, Destined to behold Thy face.
Savior, hasten Thine appearing — Bring, O bring the glorious day,
When, the awful summons hearing, Heav’n and earth shall pass away:
Then with golden harps we’ll sing, “Glory, glory to our King!”
