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.
