Sing We the King
Charles S. Horne, 1865-1914
Joan J. Pinkston, b. 1947
Sing we the King who is coming to reign,
Glory to Jesus, the Lamb that was slain;
Life and salvation His empire shall bring,
Joy to the nations when Jesus is King.
Souls shall be saved from the presence of sin,
Doubt shall not darken His witness within,
Hell hath no terrors, and death hath no sting;
Love is victorious when Jesus is King.
All men shall dwell in His marvelous light,
Races long severed His love shall unite;
Justice and truth from His scepter shall spring,
Wrong shall be ended when Jesus is King.
All shall be glad in His kingdom of peace,
Freedom shall flourish and wisdom increase;
Foe shall be friend when His triumph we sing,
Sword shall be sickle when Jesus is King.
Kingdom of Christ, for Thy coming we pray,
Hasten, O Father, the dawn of the day,
When this new song Thy creation shall sing:
Satan is vanquished, for Jesus is King!
