Hymn/Song Information

Shout for the blessed Jesus reigns




Shout, for the blessèd Jesus reigns;
Through distant lands
His triumphs spread;
And sinners, freed
from endless pains,
Own Him their Savior and their Head.


His sons and daughters from afar;
Daily at Zion’s gates arrive;
Those who were dead in sin before
By sovereign grace are made alive.


Oppressors bow beneath his feet,
O’ercome by his victorious power;
Princes in humble posture wait,
And scorners tremble and adore.


Gentiles and Jews shall him obey;
Nations remote their off’rings bring,
And unconstrained their homage pay
To their exalted God and King.


O may His conquests still increase,
And every foe his arm subdue,
While angels celebrate His praise,
And saints His growing glories shew.


Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb,
From all below, and all above!
In lofty songs exalt His Name,
In songs as lasting as His love.


---Alternative verses---


He calls His chosen from afar;
They all at Zion’s gates arrive;
Those who were dead in sin before
By sovereign grace are made alive.


Gentiles and Jews His laws obey;
Nations remote their off’rings bring,
And unconstrained their homage pay
To their exalted God and King.


O may His holy church increase,
His Word and Spirit still prevail,
While angels celebrate His praise,
And saints His growing glories hail.
