Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And endless praises crown His head;
His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise
With ev'ry morning sacrifice.
People and realms of ev'ry tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voic es shall pro claim
Their early blessings on His name.
Blessings abound where'er He reigns:
The pris'ner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.
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.
Let ev'ry creature rise and bring
Blessing and honor to our King;
Angels descend with songs a gain,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.
