158. Jesus Shall Reign

1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
does its successive journeys run;
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2 To Him shall endless prayer be made,
and endless praises crown His head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice

3 People and realms of every tongue
dwell on His love with sweetest song,
and infant voices shall proclaim
their early blessings on His name.

4 Let every creature rise and bring
honor and glory to our King;
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud "Amen"!
