King of Kings

  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.
