Jesus shall Reign Where’er the Sun
By Isaac Watts (1674–1748)
 
JESUS shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
 
For him shall endless prayer be made,        5
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        10
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,        15
And all the sons of want are blest.
 
Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honors to our king;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.        20
