1. Look, ye saints! The sight is glorious: See the Man of Sorrows now; From the fight returned victorious, Every knee to Him shall bow: Crown Him! Crown Him! Crowns become the Victor’s brow.
2. Crown the Savior! Angels, crown Him! Rich the trophies Jesus brings; In the seat of pow’r enthrone Him, While the vault of heaven rings: Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown the Savior King of kings.
3. Sinners in derision crowned Him, Mocking thus the Savior’s claim; Saints and angels crowd around Him, Own His title, praise His name: Crown Him! Crown Him! Spread abroad the Victor’s fame.
4. Hark, those bursts of acclamation! Hark, those loud triumphant chords! Jesus takes the highest station; Oh, what joy the sight affords! Crown Him! Crown Him! King of kings and Lord of lords!
