Hail, all hail, the King of kings

Hail, all hail, the King of kings

Author: James Montgomery
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Hail, all hail, the King of kings!
On His throne of sovereignty,
By whose will, whose word, all things
Are, and were, and yet shall be.

Hail Him, all that move and breathe,
On His throne of Providence;
To His family beneath,
Life and health diffusing thence.

Hail Him on His throne of grace,
God our Father reconciled,
Changing, from our fallen race,
Many a foe into a child.

Hail Him on His throne of light,
O'er His family above,
From the beatific sight,
Sending peace, and joy, and love.

Hail, all hail, the King of kings,
When on earth He deigns to dwell,
Heaven into the soul He brings,
God with us, Immanuel.

6
Come, O come! and for Thy throne,
King of kings, each heart prepare;
Reign triumphant, reign alone,
Lord of lords, for ever there.
