King of kings and Lord of lords,
Oh, how rich these glorious words!
Titles high and boundless fame
Now enhance the Saviour’s name.
He who once was crowned with thorn
Crowns of glory now adorn;
Jesus sits upon the throne,
Hosts His triumph gladly own!
Blessed ’tis to see Him there,
Centre of that glory fair;
Thus our highest praise we bring,
Falling prostrate, worshipping.
Now within the Father’s house
Well we know Him and rejoice;
Glad that He, e’en now, should share
All the Father’s glory there.
Soon will He appear again,
Then His saints with Him shall reign;
Echo far the glorious words:
King of kings and Lord of lords.
