Crown his head with endless blessing

Representative 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.
