Representative Text

1 Jesus reigns forever, mighty Victor still;
Tempest, wave and sunshine shall His word fulfill;
Pardon and salvation,
Joy and consolation,
Bless the happy people who obey His will.

Jesus reigns, our mighty King forever!
Jesus reigns! transcendent in His love.
Let our praises, blending,
Join the song unending,
Swell the hallelujahs of the world above.

2 Jesus reigns forever, blessed Prince of Peace;
Thro’ the world’s dominions may His word increase;
By His grace unfailing,
Over sin prevailing,
Wonderful His kingdom, nevermore to cease. [Refrain]

3 Jesus reigns forever on His heav’nly throne;
Yield Him glad allegiance, serving Him alone;
When the finished story
Shall record His glory,
We shall sing His mercy, and His goodness own. [Refrain]
