All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

Edward Perronet
(1726-1792)

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown Him Lord of all,
Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.1

Let highborn seraphs tune the lyre, and as they tune it, fall
Before His face Who tunes their choir, and crown Him Lord of all,
Before His face Who tunes their choir, and crown Him Lord of all.

Crown Him, ye morning stars of light, Who fixed this floating ball;
Now hail the strength of Israel’s might and crown Him Lord of all;
Now hail the strength of Israel’s might, and crown Him Lord of all.

Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God, who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod and crown Him Lord of all,
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod and crown Him Lord of all.

Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race, ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace and crown Him Lord of all,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace and crown Him Lord of all.

Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line, Whom David Lord did call,
The God incarnate, Man divine, and crown Him Lord of all,
The God incarnate, Man divine, and crown Him Lord of all.

Ye Gentile sinners, ne’er forget the wormwood and the gall;
Go spread your trophies at His feet and crown Him Lord of all.
Go spread your trophies at His feet and crown Him Lord of all.

Let every tribe and every tongue before Him prostrate fall
And shout in universal song the crownèd Lord of all.
And shout in universal song the crownèd Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe on this terrestrial ball
To Him all majesty ascribe and crown Him Lord of all,
To Him all majesty ascribe and crown Him Lord of all!

O that, with yonder sacred throng, we at His feet may fall,
Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all,
Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all!

[Note: The last verse has been attributed to John Rippon (1751-1836)]
