Words: Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring Music: Diademata, George Job Elvey Crown Him with many crowns The Lamb upon His throne Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns All music but its own! Awake my soul and sing Of Him who died for thee And hail Him as thy matchless King Through all eternity. Crown Him the Lord of love: Behold His hands and side, Rich wounds yet visible above, In beauty glorified; No angel in the sky Can fully bear that sight But downward bends His wondering eye At mysteries so bright. Crown Him the Lord of life: Who triumphed o'er the grave, Who rose victorious to 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. 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 has died; Be Thou, O Lord, through endless days Adored and magnified. Crown Him the Lord of years: The potentate of time, Creator of the rolling spheres, Ineffably sublime. All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou hast died for me; Thy praise and glory shall not fail Throughout eternity.
