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

1
All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!
  Let angels prostrate fall,
  Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
  And crown Him, crown Him,
  crown Him, crown Him;
  And crown Him Lord of all!
2
Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
  Ye ransomed from the fall,
  Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
3
Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
  The wormwood and the gall,
  The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at His feet,
4
Let every kindred, every tribe,
  On this terrestrial ball,
  On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
5
O that with yonder sacred throng
  We at His feet may fall,
  We at His feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,

This hymn has an interesting and perhaps unlikely story attached to it. Edward Perronet grew up in the home of an Anglican vicar in the 1700s. After sometime in the Anglican Church, he became disillusioned and joined the Methodists. During his time with this denomination, Perronet was roughed up, tossed around, dumped in the mud, and had stones thrown at him. After a falling out with the Methodists, he moved to another group… which he eventually left as well. Nevertheless, Perronet wrote this beautiful hymn, which became very much loved in the church. It also became utilized numerously by evangelists and missionaries.

One amazing missionary story attached to the song is the following: “Rev. E. P. Scott was a missionary in India during the 1800s. At the prompting of the Holy Spirit, but against the advice of his fellow missionaries, Scott set out alone to visit a remote village. He was determined to share the Gospel with a dangerous savage tribe. Several days into his journey, Scott met a large group of warriors who quickly surrounded him, each pointing a spear towards his heart. Expecting to die, Scott made a decision to use his last few breaths to glorify God, and to hopefully to stir something within the hearts of his captors. He took out his violin, (which he always carried with him), closed his eyes, and began to play ‘All Hail, the Power of Jesus’ Name, ’ in the native language of the warriors. After singing, The first stanza, the second, the third, and then, beginning the fourth, Rev. Scott realized he was still standing, and that all around him was a peaceful quiet. Opening his eyes, he saw every spear lowered. There stood those mighty warriors with tears in their eyes. Throughout the remainder of his life, Scott spent much time with this tribe, sharing the love of God. “
