1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
does its successive journeys run;
his kingdom spread from shore to shore,
till moons shall wax and wane no more.
2 People and realms of every tongue
dwell on his love with sweetest song;
and infant voices shall proclaim
their early blessings on his name.
3 Blessings abound where're he reigns;
and prisoners leap to lose their chains;
the weary find eternal rest,
and all who suffer want are blest.
4 Let every creature rise and bring
peculiar honours to our King;
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud amen!
