Refrain: And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, and crown Him Lord of all.
1. All hail the power of Jesus’ name! Let angels prostrate fall, Let angels prostrate fall; Bring forth the royal diadem,
2. Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, Ye ransomed from the fall, Ye ransomed from the fall; Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
3. Let ev’ry kindred, ev’ry tribe On this terrestrial ball, On this terrestrial ball; To Him all majesty ascribe,
4. O that with yonder sacred throng We at His feet may fall, We at His feet may fall! We’ll join the everlasting song,
5. Let highborn seraphs tune the lyre, And as they tune it, fall And as they tune it, fall Before His face who tunes their choir,
6. Crown Him, ye morning stars of light, Who fixed this floating ball; Who fixed this floating ball; Now hail the strength of Israel’s might,
7. Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God, Who from His altar call; Who from His altar call; Extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
8. Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line, Whom David Lord did call, Whom David Lord did call, The God incarnate, Man divine,
9. Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget The wormwood and the gall, The wormwood and the gall, Go spread your trophies at His feet,
