87: JESUS shall reign where'er the sunby I Watts (1674-1748)
1 JESUS shall reign where'er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
2 To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His Name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
3 Blessings abound where'er He reigns:
The prisoner leaps to loose his chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.
4 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to the King;
Angels, descend with songs again
And, earth, repeat the loud Amen.
