437. Crown Him with Many Crowns

1 Crown him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon his throne:
Hark, how the heav'nly anthem drowns
All music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who set us free,
And hail him as our heav'nly king
Through all eternity.

2 Crown him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed o'er the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife
For those he came to save.
His glories now we sing,
Who died and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
And lives that death may die.

3 Crown him the Lord of lords,
Who over all does reign,
Who once on earth, th'incarnate Word,
For ransomed sinners slain,
Now lives in realms of light,
Where saints with angels sing
Their songs before him day and night,
Their God, Redeemer, King.
