406. Look, O Look, the Sight Is Glorious

1 Look, oh, look, the sight is glorious,
see the man of sorrows now;
from the fight returned victorious,
ev'ry knee to him shall bow.
Crown him! Crown him!
Crown him! Crown him!
Crowns become the victor's brow.

2 Crown the Savior! Angels crown him!
Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
on the seat of pow'r enthrone him
while the vault of heaven rings.
Crown him! Crown him!
Crown him! Crown him!
Crown the Savior, King of kings.

3 Sinners in derision crowned him,
mocking thus the Savior's claim;
saints and angels crowd around him,
own his title, praise his name.
Crown him! Crown him!
Crown him! Crown him!
Spread abroad the victor's fame!

4 Hark! those burst of acclamation!
Hark! those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;
O, what joy the sight affords!
Crown him! Crown him!
Crown him! Crown him!
King of kings and Lord of lords!
