Representative Text

1 King Jesus, reign for evermore,
Unrivaled in thy courts above;
While we, with all thy saints, adore
The wonders of redeeming love.

2 No other Lord but thee we'll know,
No other power but thine confess;
We'll spread thine honors while below,
And heaven shall know our blessedness.

3 We'll sing along the heavenly road
That leads us to thy blest abode;
Till with the vast unnumbered throng
We join in heaven's triumphant song--

4 Till with pure hands and voices sweet
We cast our crowns at Jesus' feet,
And sing of everlasting love
In everlasting strains above.
