Hymn/Song Information

JESUS IS KING




Let us awake our joys.
Strike up with cheerful voice—
Each creature sing;
Angels—begin the song,
Mortals—the strain prolong,
In accents sweet and strong,
"Jesus is King."


Proclaim abroad his name,
Tell of his matchless fame—
What wonders done;
Above, beneath, around;
Let the whole earth resound,
Till the high heavens rebound,
"Victory is won."


He vanquished sin and hell,
And the last foe will quell;
Mourners rejoice!
His dying love adore,
Praise him now raised in power,
And triumph evermore,
With a glad voice.


All hail the glorious day,
When through the heavenly way
Lo, he shall come!
While they who pierced him wail,
His promise shall not fail,
Saints, see your King prevail;
Great Saviour, come!

Proclaim abroad his name,
Tell of his matchless fame-
What wonders done;
Shout through hell's dark profound;
Let all the earth resound,
Till heaven's high arch rebound,
"Victory is won."


Proclaim abroad his name,
Tell of his matchless fame—
What wonders done;
Shout through hell's dark profound;
Let the whole earth resound,
Till the high heavens rebound,
"The victory's won."


He vanquished sin and hell,
And our last foe will quell;
Mourners rejoice!
His dying love adore,
Praise him now raised in power,
Praise him for evermore,
With joyful voice.


All hail the glorious day,
When through the heavenly way
Lo, he shall come!
While they who pierced him wail,
His promise shall not fail,
Saints, see your King prevail;
Come, dear Lord, come!
