1 Jesus shall reign where’er the sun Does his successive journeys run; His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
2 Behold the islands with their kings, And Europe her best tribute brings; From north to south the princes meet, To pay their homage at His feet.
3 There Persia, glorious to behold, There India shines in eastern gold; And barbarous nations at His word Submit, and bow, and own their Lord.
4 To Him shall endless prayer be made, And praises throng to crown His head; His name like sweet perfume shall rise With every morning sacrifice.
5 People and realms of every tongue Dwell on His love with sweetest song; And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on His name.
6 Blessings abound where’er He reigns; The prisoner leaps to lose his chains; The weary find eternal rest, And all the sons of want are blessed.
7 Where He displays His healing power, Death and the curse are known no more: In Him the tribes of Adam boast More blessings than their father lost.
8 Let every creature rise and bring Peculiar honors to our King; Angels descend with songs again, And earth repeat the loud amen! SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6BR...
