Representative Text

1 Let the joy bells ring,
Let the glad hosts sing,
Let the heav’nly choirs join in the glad refrain;
Let the chorus grand
Ring thro’ ev’ry land—
That the King Immanuel has come to reign.

We will crown Him,
Crown Him King,
Crown Him King and Lord of all;
We will crown Him, crown Him King.
We will crown Him, crown Him Lord of all.

2 From the lofty steeps,
From the mighty deeps,
All the nature voices joins the grand acclaim;
Melodies most sweet,
Harmonies complete,
Swell in honor of our King Immanuel’s name. [Refrain]

3 Satan’s cohorts quake,
Hell’s foundations shake
As the mighty chorus peals thro’out the sky;
Evil soon shall fall,
Christ shall reign o’er all,
King Immanuel and Lord of lords Most High. [Refrain]
