Crown Him With Many Crowns (hymn)

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
Thro all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love!
Behold His hands and side.
Rich wounds, yet visible above
In beauty glorified!
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight
But downward bends his wondering eye
At mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of life!
Who triumphed o'er the grave
Who rose victorious to 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 heaven!
On with the Father knows
One with the Spirit through Him given
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.

--Matthew Bridges, George J. Elvey
