1All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!
2Crown Him, ye martyrs of our God
Who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
And crown Him Lord of all!
3Hail Him, the Heir of David’s line,
Whom David, Lord did call;
The God incarnate, Man divine!
And crown Him Lord of all!
4Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
Ye ransomed of the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!
5Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all!
6Let every kindred, every tribe,
Before Him prostrate fall!
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!
