439. Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious!

1 Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious!
See the Man of Sorrows now,
from the fight returned victorious --
every knee to him shall bow.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
crowns become the Victor's brow.

2 Crown the Saviour, angels, crown him!
Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
in the seat of power enthrone him,
while the vault of heaven rings.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
crown the Savior King of kings.

3 Sinners in derision crowned him,
mocked the dying Saviour's claim;
saints and angels crowd around him,
own his title, praise his name.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
spread abroad the Victor's fame.

4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation!
hark, those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station --
Oh, what joy the sight affords!
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
King of kings, and Lord of lords!
