Crown Him with Many Crowns

Crown Him With Many Crowns
Matthew Bridges (stanzas 1, 2, 4), Godfrey Thring (stanza 3)

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n, One with the Father known;
One with the Spirit through Him giv’n from yonder glorious throne.
To Thee be endless praise, for Thou for us hast died;
Be Thou, O Lord, through endless days adored and magnified.


His eyes are like blazing fire, and on His head are many crowns.
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is the Word of God.
Revelation 19: 12, 13

One of my favorite hymns! There is nothing quite like the old hymns - such powerful, meaningful words. Thank you for sharing and have a blessed Monday. Hugs!

I love the older hymns. So many of the ones you print the lyrics to remind me of my college years playing piano for church and for the young children's choirs. I was affectionately called "Miss Mildred." Still today, now grown, these folks that were in choir, call me Miss Mildred!!!
