Jesus shall reign where'er the sun

1) Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
does his successive jouneys run;
his kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2) People and realms of ev'ry tongue
dwell on his love with sweetest song;
and infant voices shall proclaim
their early blessings on his name.

3) Blessings abound where'er he reigns;
the pris'ner leaps to lose his chains;
the weary find eternal rest,
and all the sons of want are blest.

4) Let every creature rise and bring
peculliar honours to our King;
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud. Amen.
