His Reign

L.M.

1
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2
For Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His Name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

3
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His Name.

4
Blessings abound where’er He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.

5
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.

6
Let every creature rise and bring,
Peculiar honours to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.
