157. Jesus Shall Reign

Text: Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Music: John Hatton, d. 1793
Tune: DUKE STREET, Meter: LM

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.	To Jesus endless prayer be made, 
	and endless praises crown his head; 
	his name like sweet perfume shall rise 
	with every morning sacrifice.

3.	People and realms of every tongue 
	dwell on his love with sweetest song; 
	and infant voices shall proclaim 
	their early blessings on his name.

4.	Blessings abound where'er he reigns; 
	all prisoners leap and loose their chains; 
	the weary find eternal rest, 
	and all who suffer want are blest.

5.	Let every creature rise and bring 
	honors peculiar to our King; 
	angels descend with songs again, 
	and earth repeat the loud amen!
