Lyrics

Alleluia! King victorious!
Christ is risen! Hear the strain!
Lo! He comes with seraphs singing,
Join ye too the glad refrain.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Angels crown Him!
Jesus Christ has come to reign.

All the darkness now is over,
Peace and joy the Savior brings;
Listen as the hosts draw nearer,
How the song in Heaven rings!
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Angels crown Him!
Crown the Savior King of kings!

E’en the children love to greet Him;
Hark! He calls them to Him now;
With their shouts of joy they praise Him,
While the saints in homage bow.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Angels crown Him!
Crown the noble victor’s brow.
