Jesus Shall Reign / Jesus Shall Reign Where’er The Sun

Jesus Shall Reign / Jesus Shall Reign Where’er The Sun

Song based on the Bible verse:
Psalm 72:8
He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.

Song written by:
Original in English: Isaac Watts

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

Behold the islands with their kings
And Europe her best tribute brings
From north to south the princes meet
To pay their homage at His feet

There Persia glorious to behold
There India shines in eastern gold
And barbarous nations at His word
Submit and bow and own their Lord

To Him shall endless prayer be made
And praises throng to 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

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

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

Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honors to our king
Angels descend with songs again
And earth repeat the loud amen
