1 O’er the earth the chorus rings,
As God’s hosts united sing;
Unto Him who pardon brings,
Crown Him King of kings.

Crown Him King,
Crown Him King,
Crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him King of kings.

2 Hills and vales the strains repeat,
While we worship at His feet;
Find in Him a joy complete,
Crown Him King of kings. [Refrain]

3 Ruler in our lives to be,
E’er our Guide and help is He;
Strong in Him one body we,
Crown Him King of kings. [Refrain]
