When Christ Alone Shall Reign


When Christ alone shall reign in the world of sin,
When ev’ry soul for Him is won,
What sweet and willing service will then begin,
And what glorious deeds be done,
And what glorious deeds be done.

Refrain:
When Christ is crown’d in royal grace,
And all human hearts enthrone Him,
When, like the saints that behold His face,
Mortals or earth as King shall own Him,
What joy will reign, what peace divine,
What exultant music shall ring,
The light of heav’n in the world will shine,
When He is crown’d Lord and King.

When His shall be the voice that we strive to hear,
And His the law all men obey,
When His shall be the name that all hearts revere,
What a glorious crowning day!
What a glorious crowning day! [Refrain]

O hasten, happy day, when our Lord shall reign
Unrivalled, and in full command,
Let ev’ry idol fall, with its promise vain,
And our King in His glory stand.
And our King in His glory stand. [Refrain]
