Christ's universal and everlasting kingdom
JESUS shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
2 From north to south the princes meet,
To pay their homage at his feet;
While western empires own their Lord,
And savage tribes attend his word.
3 To him shall endless prayer be made,
And endless praises crown his head;
His Name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
4 People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on his love with sweetest song,
And infant Voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his Name.
Methodist Episcopal hymnal (1870 edition)
