Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

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]
