Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journey run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
From north to south the nations meet
To pay their homage at His feet;
While western empires own their Lord,
And eastern lands attend His word.
To him shall endless prayer be made,
And endless praises crown his head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his name.
