Jesus Shall Reign Where’er the Sun

  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. To him shall endless prayer be made,
    and praises throng to crown his head;
    his name, like sweet perfume, shall rise
    with ev’ry morning sacrifice.
  3. People and realms of ev’ry 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 pris’ner leaps to lose his chains,
    the weary find eternal rest,
    and all the sons of want are blest.
  5. Let ev’ry creature rise and bring
    peculiar honors to our King;
    angels descend with songs again,
    and earth repeat the loud amen!
