233. Jesus Shall Reign

1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
does its successive journeys run;
his kingdom spread from shore to shore,
till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2 To him shall endless prayer be made,
and endless praises 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'ners leap to lose their chains,
the weary find eternal rest,
and all who suffer want are bless'd.

5 Let ev'ry creature rise and bring
peculiar honors to our King;
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud Amen.
