CROWN HIM WITH MANY CROWNS

Matthew Bridges, George J. Elvey

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne

Hark! How the heav’nly anthem drowns all music but its own

Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee

And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity!

 

Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all doth reign

Who once on earth the Incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners, slain

Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing

Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King!

 

Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time

Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime

All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me

Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity!
