“JESUS shall reign where’er the sun”

1. JESUS shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

 

2. For Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to 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;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest;
And all the sons of want are blest.

 

5. Where He displays His healing power,
Death and the curse are known no more;
In Him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost.

 

6. Let every creature rise and bring
Distinctive honours to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.

 

Isaac Watts, 1674-1748


” O BLESS the Lord, my soul!”

1. O BLESS the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join,
And aid my tongue to bless His name,
Whose favours are divine.

 

2. O bless the Lord, my soul,
Nor let His mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die.

 

3. ’Tis He forgives thy sins;
’Tis He relieves thy pain;
’Tis He that heals thy sicknesses,
And makes thee young again.

 

4. He crowns thy life with love,
When ransomed from the grave;
He that redeemed my soul from hell
Has sovereign power to save.

 

5. He fills the poor with good,
He gives the sufferers rest;
The Lord has judgements for the proud,
And justice for the oppressed.

 

6. His wondrous works and ways
He made by Moses known;
But sent the world His truth and grace
By His belovèd Son.

 

Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
