Jesus Shall Reign Where'er the Sun 167
(DUKE STREET L. M.)
Isaac Watts, 1719 John Hatton, -1793
 
<poem>
1.

Jesus shall reign where'er the sun Does his suecessive journeys run, His king - dom spread from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more,

2.

For him shall end less prayer be made, And praises throng to crown his head; His name, like sweet per fume, shall rise

3.

People and realms of every tongue Dwell on his love with sweet - est song, And infant voices shall proclaim With every morning sacrifice;

4.

Blessings a bound where'er he reigns; The prisoner leaps to loose his chains, The weary find eternal rest, Their early blessings on his name.

5.

Let every creature rise and bring Peculiar honors to our King; An - gels de scend with songs a - gain, And all the sons of want are blest.

And earth repeat the loud Amen Amen
