More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Crown his head with endless blessing

Full Text

1 Crown his head with endless blessing,
Who, in God the Father's Name,
With compassions never ceasing,
Comes salvation to proclaim.

2 Hail, ye saints, who know his favor,
Who within his gates are found,
Hail, ye saints, th'exalted Saviour,
Let his courts with praise resound.

3 Jesus, thee our Saviour hailing,
Thee our God in praise we own;
Highest honors, never failing,
Rise eternal round thy throne.

4 Now, ye saints, his pow'r confessing,
In your grateful strains adore;
For his mercy, never ceasing,
Flows, and flows for evermore.

Amen.
