261. CROWN HIM_1

Christ in Song,

1.
Crown him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon his throne;
Hark!  how the heav'nly anthem drowns
All music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who died for thee;
And hail him as thy matchless King
Thro' all eternity.

2.
Crown him the Lord of love!
Behold his hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified:
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his wond'ring eye
At mysteries so great.

3.
Crown him the Lord of peace!
Whose hand a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
And all be pray'r and praise:
His reign shall know no end,
And round his pierced feet
Fair flow'rs of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet.

4.
Crown him the Lord of years,
The Potentate of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres,
Ineffably sublime!
All hail!  Redeemer, hail!
For thou hast died for me;
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity.
