All hail the power of Jesus' Name !

On the "Resurrection—The Lord is King.




All hail the power of Jesus' Name !
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.

2 Crown Him, ye morning stars of light,
Who fixed this floating ball;
Now hail the strength of Israel's might,
And crown Him Lord of all.

3 Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God
Who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse's rod,
And crown Him Lord of all.

4 Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,
Ye ransomed of the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

5 Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all.

6 Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all.

7 O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall;
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all.

This is often called "The Coronation Hymn." It appeared in the Gospel Magazine for April, 1780, and was written by Edward Perronet. He was born in 1726, was brought np in the Church of England, and became one of John Wesley's helpers (see under No. 3). After¬ward he was pastor of an Independent church in Canter¬bury, where he died in 1792, and was buried in the clois¬ters of the famous Cathedral. In life he was full of fire and enthusiasm, and some of it bums yet in his spirited hymn. The 6th verse, as almost always sung now, and as printed here, was a good deal changed from what Perronet wrote by an editor, Dr. Rippon, in 1787, and he added this 7th verse to the hymn. [NOTES.—Verse 3, line 3. See Isaiah xi, 1. Verse 5, line 2. See Jeremiah ix, 15.]
