Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

599. 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,
ev'ry knee to him shall bow.
Crown him! Crown him! Crown him! Crown him!
Crowns become the Victor's brow.

2. Crown the Savior, angels, crown him,
rich the triumphs Jesus brings;
in the seat of pow'r 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,
mocking thus the Savior's claim;
saints and angels throng 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!
