“His eyes are like flames of fire and on His head are many crowns” Revelation 19:12
1 Crown Him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns
all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
of Him who died for thee,
and hail Him as the matchless King,
through all eternity.
Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began, and ye who tread where He hath trod, crown Him the Son of Man; Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast, and takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.
2 Crown Him the Lord of life,
who triumphed o’er the grave
and rose victorious in the strife
for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing
who died, and rose on high,
who died, eternal life to bring,
and lives that death may die.
3 Crown Him the Lord of love;
behold His hands and side.
those wounds, yet visible above,
in beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky
can fully bear that sight,
but downward bends His burning eye
at mysteries so bright.
4 Crown Him the Lord of peace,
whose pow’r a scepter sways
from pole to pole, that wars may cease,
and all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end;
and round His pierced feet
fair flow’rs of paradise extend
their fragrance ever sweet.
Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, One with the Father known, One with the Spirit through Him given from yonder glorious throne. To Thee be endless praise for Thou for us hast died, Be Thou, O Lord, through endless days adored and magnified.
5 Crown Him the Lord of years,
the Potentate of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres,
All hail, Redeemer, hail!
for Thou hast died for me.
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
~Matthew Bridges 1852 and Godfrey Thring 1874
ineffably sublime: not able to put into words, grandeur, excellence and beauty that results in honor, admiration and awe
[note: I had to add the two verses and change many words from the hymn lyrics on google, and I am thankful to have hymnals at home]
Old hymns are comforting and strengthening and we sing the new Song of the Lamb! We cast our crowns at the feet of Jesus who wears many crowns! To God our Father and his Christ we give all thanks and honor and praise and worship and glory and majesty and blessings and dominion and power and authority now and is to come! The Lord God omnipotent reigns, and He shall reign forever and ever, hallelujah! hallelujah! hallelujah!!! Glory, glory, hallelujah, His Truth is marching on!
Our Living Hope is Jesus! Our Living Faith is Jesus! Our True Eternal Love is Jesus! Our righteousness is Jesus! Our peace is Jesus! Our life is resurrected Jesus! Our God and Father is Jesus, the Son ONE with the Father! The Government of God is upon Jesus’ shoulders; we raise the standard of Righteousness over America and the governance of Christ Jesus over every state. The only perfect union is union with God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ, by the HOLY Spirit. Jesus is true Justice and Righteousness; Jesus is true enlightenment: the light of Truth, the light of Life, the light of the Way. Thank you Jesus!
