Charles S. Horne (1865–1914)


Sing we the King who is com­ing to reign,
Glory to Je­sus, the Lamb that was slain.
Life and sal­va­tion His em­pire shall bring,
Joy to the na­tions when Je­sus is king.


Come let us sing, praise to our king,
Jesus our king, Je­sus our king,
This is our song, who to Je­sus be­long:
Glory to Je­sus, to Je­sus our king.

All men shall dwell in His mar­vel­ous light,
Races long se­vered His love shall unite,
Justice and truth from His scep­ter shall spring,
Wrong shall be end­ed when Je­sus is king.


All shall be well in His king­dom of peace,
Freedom shall flour­ish and wis­dom in­crease,
Foe shall be friend when His tri­umph we sing,
Sword shall be sic­kle when Je­sus is king.


Souls shall be saved from the bur­den of sin,
Doubt shall not dark­en His wit­ness within,
Hell hath no ter­rors, and death hath no sting;
Love is vic­to­ri­ous when Je­sus is king.


Kingdom of Christ, for thy com­ing we pray,
Hasten, O Fa­ther, the dawn of the day
When this new song Thy cre­ation shall sing,
Satan is van­quished, and Je­sus is king.
