227 ~ Jesus Shall Reign


Jesus shall reign where e'r the sun
Does its successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.


People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their earthly blessings on His name.


Blessings abound where e'r He reigns:
The pris'ners leap to lose their chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all who suffer want are blest.


Let every creature rise and bring
Honors peculiar to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen.
