1 Jesu, my God and King,
Thy regal state I sing;
Thou, and only thou art great,
High thine everlasting throne;
Thou the sov'reign Potentate,
Blest immortal thou alone.
2 Essay your choicest strains,
The King Messiah reigns!
Tune your harps, celestial choir,
Joyful all, your voices raise,
Christ than earth-born monarchs higher,
Sons of men and angels praise.
3 Hail your dread Lord and ours,
Dominions, thrones, and pow'rs;
Source of pow'r he rules alone;
Veil your eyes and prostrate fall,
Cast your crowns before his throne,
Hail the cause, the Lord of all.
4 Justice and truth maintain
Thine everlasting reign:
One with thine almighty fire,
Partner of an equal throne,
King of hearts, let all conspire,
Gratefully thy sway to own.
5 Let earth's remotest bound
With ecchoing joys resound;
Christ to praise let all conspire;
Praise to Christ doth all belong;
Shout ye first-born sons of fire,
Earth repeat the glorious song.
