227 - Jesus Shall Reign

Jesus shall reign wherever the sun
Does its successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore
to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His Name.
Blessings abound where'er He reigns;
The pris’ners leap to lose their chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all who suffer want are blest.
Let every creature rise and bring
Honors peculiar to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!
