Crown Him with rejoicing, sing His matchless praise!
Let your happy voices bless Him all your days;
March beneath His banner, follow His command;
Lo, He rules in splendor with a powerful hand.
Hail today Immanuel’s birth!
Praise Him! praise Him! Heav’n and earth!
Crown Him king with glad rejoicing,
O’er and o’er His wonders voicing;
Jesus reigns; Hosanna! cry,
Glory be to God on high!
Crown Him with rejoicing on this blessèd day!
Let the bells in chorus echo miles away;
Glorious proclamation! let it chime and ring,
Christ, the Lord and Savior, reigns our sovereign king!
Crown Him with rejoicing! come from far and near—
’Tis the Christmas season, best of all the year;
Bring your gifts to Jesus, low before Him fall,
Crown Him king eternal, crown Him Lord of all.
