All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name (Long)

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!
  Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
  And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
  Crown Him Lord of all!
Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God
  Who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God incarnate. Man Divine;
Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
  Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
  The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at His feet.
Let every kindred, every tribe,
  On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
O that with yonder sacred throng
  We at His feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,

The hymn makes one acknowledge God as our only king.

To God alone be all the glory forever and ever.

Very much liking this Long tune version with the 3 lines. I can't remember ever singing it. The last line culminates with a kind of triumphal driving punch.

I can see us singing this song in the New Jerusalem, following with thunderous praise Crown Him Crown Him Lord of all!

Edward Perronet was born in Sundridge, Kent, England, in 1726. He was a descendant of a distinguished Huguenot family who had fled to Switzerland and later to England because of religious persecution in France. Edward’s father, a pastor in the state Church of England, was strongly sympathetic with the evangelical movement headed up by the Wesley brothers and George Whitfield. Edward too became a minister of the Anglican Church but was critical of its ways. Once he wrote “ I was born and I’m likely to die in the tottering communion of the Church of England, but I despise her nonsense. ” Soon however, he broke from the Church and threw himself strenuously into the evangelistic endeavors of the Wesleys during the 1740’s and 1750’s. It was at this time that the Wesleys and their followers suffered much persecution and even violence from those who disagreed with their ministry.

Another interesting account between the Wesleys and Edward Parronet is when John Wesley announced to the congregation that Parronet would preach at the next service. He was 18 years younger than John and Edward refused to preach in front of a minister older than he. Because he didn’t want to contradict Wesley he got up in the pulpit and quickly explained the he had never agreed to preach. “However, ” he said “I shall deliver the greatest sermon that has ever been preached on earth. ” He then read the Sermon on the Mount and afterwards sat down without a comment.

Eventually, Perronet’s strong- mindedness and free spirit caused a break with the Wesleys. Edward continued to the end of his days as pastor of an independent church at Canterbury, England. His last words have also become a classic.

Glory to God in the height of His divinity!

Glory to God in the depth of His humanity!

Glory to God in His all- sufficiency!

Into His hands I commend my spirit.

Edward Perronet went to be with the Lord in 1792.

This hymn has been called "the national anthem of Christendom". Others have said, "It is a hymn that will be sung as long as there are Christians on earth, and after that - throughout eternity."

As Edward Perronet lay dying at age 66, his final words were -

"Glory to God in the height of His divinity!

Glory to God in the depth of His humanity!

Glory to God in His all-sufficiency!

Into His hands I commend my spirit!"


This tune, "Miles Lane" is the one most commonly used in Great Britain. "Coronation" by American businessman, lay preacher and musician, Oliver Holden, is the tune most widely used in the U.S. and is used by with the short version.

"Diadem Tune" by 19 year old English hat maker, James Ellor, is with's medium length version.


A pioneer missionary to India, Mr. E. P. Scott, had a remarkable experience with this hymn:

"One day I was waylaid by a murderous band of tribesmen who were closing in on me with spears. On impulse I took my violin out of my luggage, closed my eyes and began to play and sing, 'All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name.' When I reached the stanza - 'Let every kindred every tribe' - I opened my eyes. Instead of the approaching spears, I saw every spear lowered and many of the tribesmen moved to tears"

Though Edward Perronet wrote many other hymn texts, "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" is his only work to survive. How thankful we should be that God used this 18th century pastor to pen an inspiring text and then supplied the wings of melody to empower its use by worshiping believers around the world. - '52 Hymn Stories Dramatized' by Kenneth W Osbeck
