Representative Text

1. Crown Him with rejoicing, sing His matchless praise!
Let your happy voices bless Him all your days;
March beneath His banner, follow His command;
Lo, He rules in splendor with a powerful hand.

Hail today Immanuel’s birth!
Praise Him! praise Him! Heav’n and earth!
Crown Him King with glad rejoicing,
O’er and o’er His wonders voicing;
Jesus reigns; Hosanna! cry,
Glory be to God on high!

2. Crown Him with rejoicing on this blessèd day!
Let the bells in chorus echo miles away;
Glorious proclamation! let it chime and ring,
Christ, the Lord and Savior, reigns our sov’reign King! [Refrain]

3. Crown Him with rejoicing! come from far and near—
’Tis the Christmas season, best of all the year;
Bring your gifts to Jesus, low before Him fall,
Crown Him King eternal, crown Him Lord of all. [Refrain]
