"Jesus Shall Reign"

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.

To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And endless praises crown His head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With ev'ry morning sacrifice.

The Choir by Paul Barthel

People and realms of ev'ry tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song,
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His name.

Jesus Preaches the Sermon on the Mount by James Tissot

Blessings abound where'er He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to loose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.

Heaven Of Angels by Catherine Andrews

Let every creature rise and bring
His grateful honnors to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!

Words: Isaac Watts (1719)
Music: John Hatton (1793)
Based on Psalm 72
Listen to the hymn at The Cyber Hymnal.

Very nice Cathy.
I never did figure out how to use all poster's day when I have more time I will. I like adding pictures to my posts, and it would be nice to something other than my own pictures to choose from! lol

I always liked that song - it adds to it when you put the pictures with it. It's now playing in my head!
