Jesus Shall Reign
Words by Isaac Watts
Music by John Hatton

Psalm 72:8
"He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
and from the river unto the ends of the earth."


            Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
            Does his successive journeys run;
            His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
            Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

            From north to south the princes meet
            To pay their homage at His feet;
            While western empires own their Lord,
            And savage tribes attend His word.

            To Him shall endless prayer be made,
            And endless praises 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.
