Crown Him With Many Crowns

Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Raise high the hymn, until it drowns
All music but its own.

Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him thy matchless King,
Who died to save our fallen race,
And won redeeming grace.

Crown Him the Virgin’s Son,
Our God Incarnate born;
Whose love those crimson trophies won
Which now His flesh adorn.

Crown Him the Lord of Love,
Who from His altar-throne,
Our living bread from heav’n above,
Consoles and feeds His own.

Crown Him the Lord of Life,
God’s co-eternal Son,
Who once in glorious, deadly strife
For us Redemption won.

Crown Him the Lord of Lords,
And swear Him fealty,
Whose service merits rich rewards
For all eternity.

John G. Hacker, Catholic Hymnal (New York: Schwartz, Kirwin & Fauss, 1920).
