Crown Him with Many Crowns

Lyrics ~ Matthew Bridges, 1800 - 1894 & Godfrey Thring, 1823 - 1903

Music ~ George J. Elvey, 1816 - 1893

Stanza 1:

Crown Him with many crowns,

The Lamb upon His throne:

Hark! how the heav'nly anthem drowns

All music but its own!

Awake, my soul, and sing Of Him who died for thee,

And hail Him as thy matchess King

Thru all eternity.

Stanza 2:

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 wondd'ring eye

At mysteries so bright.

Stanza 3:

Crown Him the Lord of life:

Who triumphe 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.

Stanza 4:

Crown Him the Lord of heav'n:

One with the Father known,

One with the Spir it thru Him giv'n

From yonder glorious throne.

To Thee be endless praise,

For Thou for us hast died;

Be Thou, O Lord, thru endless days

Adored and magnified.
