1. Hail to the Prince of life and peace,
Who holds the keys of death and hell!
The spacious world unseen is His,
And sovereign power becomes Him well.

2. In shame and torment once He died,
But now He lives forevermore;
Bow down, ye saints, around His seat,
And all ye angel bands, adore.

3. So live forever, glorious Lord,
To crush Thy foes and guard Thy friends!
While all Thy chosen tribes rejoice
That Thy dominion never ends.

4. Worthy Thy hands to hold the keys,
Guided by wisdom and by love;
Worthy to rule o’er mortal life,
O’er worlds below and worlds above.

5. Forever reign, victorious King!
Wide through the earth Thy name is known;
And call my longing soul to sing
Sublimer anthems near Thy throne.
