Representative Text

1 Crown Him, crown Him with glory the King of kings;
Praise and homage each heart as its tribute brings;
Sing, O earth, and unite, in the mighty refrain-
Christ, our Redeemer and King, will forever reign!

Sing hosannas, loud let the joyful anthems ring,
Laud and worship Him whom the angels adore!
Crown Him, crown Him, Savior, Redeemer and King,
Glory to God in the highest-
Glory forevermore!

2 He who reigns o'er the kingdoms of earth today,
Sends His blessings to those in the heav'nward way;
Sing we praises with hearts that with love overflow-
Glory to Jesus who conquers our ev'ry foe! [Chorus]

3 Praise Him, praise Him, the King on the great white throne;
Love Him, serve Him, who ruleth by love alone;
Up to heaven the shout of the glorified rings-
Laud and adore Him, and crown Him the King of kings!
