108: KING of kings and Lord of lordsby J. Wilson Smith (1842-1922)
1 KING of kings and Lord of lords,
Oh, how rich these glorious words!
Titles high and boundless fame
Now enhance the Saviour's name.
2 He who once was crowned with thorn
Crowns of glory now adorn;
Jesus sits upon the throne,
Hosts His triumph gladly own!
3 Blessed 'tis to see Him there,
Centre of that glory fair;
Thus our highest praise we bring,
Falling prostrate, worshipping.
4 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.
5 Soon will He appear again,
Then His saints with Him shall reign;
Echo far the glorious words:
King of kings and Lord of lords.
