1 Christ is the King and he shall reign
from sea to utmost sea,
and unto earth's remotest bounds
his peaceful rule shall be.
2 Tribes that in farthest deserts dwell
shall bow before his throne;
his enemies shall be subdued,
and he shall rule alone.
3 Kings all shall come from distant lands
and islands of the sea;
their offerings they shall bring to him
and wait on bended knee.
4 He will deliver those in need,
the weak who cry in fear;
he shall redeem them from all wrong;
their life to him is dear.
5 Long shall he live, so bring to him
your gifts of finest gold;
to him shall constant prayer be made,
his praise each day be told.
