439. Christ Shall Have Dominion

1 Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
Earth's remotest regions shall his empire be;
they that wilds inhabit shall their worship bring,
kings shall render tribute, nations serve our King.

Refrain:
Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
earth's remotest regions shall his empire be.

2 When the needy seek him, he will mercy show;
yea, the weak and helpless shall his pity know;
he will surely save them from oppression's might,
for their lives are precious in his holy sight. [Refrain]

3 Ever and forever shall his name endure,
long as suns continue it shall stand secure;
and in him forever all men shall be blest,
and all nations hail him King of kings confessed. [Refrain]

4 Unto God Almighty joyful Zion sings;
he alone is glorious, doing wondrous things.
Evermore, ye people, bless his glorious name,
his eternal glory through the earth proclaim. [Refrain]
