1Crown His head with endless blessing,
Who, in God the Father’s name,
With compassions never ceasing,
Comes salvation to proclaim.
Lo, Jehovah, we adore Thee,
Thee, our Savior, Thee, our God;
From Thy throne Thy beams of glory
Shine through all the world abroad.
2Jesus, Thee our Savior hailing,
Thee our God in praise we own;
Highest honors, never failing,
Rise eternal round Thy throne.
Now, ye saints, His power confessing,
In your grateful strains adore;
For His mercy, never ceasing,
Flows, and flows forevermore. Amen.
