Jesus shall reign where’er the sun

Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
His Kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
To Him shall endless prayer be made.
And princes throng to crown His head,
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His name.
Blessings abound where’er He reigns:
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.
Where He displays His healing power
Death and the curse are known no more;
In Him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost.
Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honors to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.

Jesus shall reign everywhere forever- no doubt, no gainsaying.

Blessings abound wherever He reigns: what a distinctness, what an assurance!

In Him, death and the curse are known no more; The tribes of Adam get more blessed than their father lost- What a merciful High Priest and God we serve, Hallelujah! Thank God stanza 5 is not missing here as in most hymn books.

The devil has NO legal hold over any man in Christ.

Let the world hear it without mistaken: your price is paid, your pardon secured, your freedom purchased, you are FREE to live again and abundant life in Christ Jesus.

I'm so happy this morning while singing the hymn along with the piano. It took me back to my childhood when we use to sing along with my parents. JESUS SHALL REIGN ALWAYS... HALLELUJAH!!!
