Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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 jim,
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!
