1. All hail the power of Jesus' name,
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
To crown him Lord of all.

2. Let high-born seraphs tune the lyre,
And, as they tune it, fall
Before his face who tunes their choir,
And crown Him Lord of all.

3. Crown Him, ye morning stars of light,
He fixed this floating ball;
Now hail the strength of Israel's might,
And crown Him Lord of all.

4. 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.

5. Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,
Ye ransomed of the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by his grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

6. Hail Him, ye heirs of David's line,
Whom David Lord did call;
The God incarnate, man divine,
And crown Him Lord of all.

7. Sinners! whose love can ne'er forget,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown Him Lord of all.






8. Let every tribe, and every tongue,
That hear the Saviour's call
Now shout in universal song,
And crown Him Lord of all.





Edward Perronet, 1779-1780

1. All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall:
Bring forth the royal diadem.
And crown Him Lord of all.











2. Crown Him, ye martyrs of our God,
Who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
And crown Him Lord of all.

3. Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
A remnant weak and small;
Hail Him, who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.






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

5. Babes, men, and sires, who know His love
Who feel your sin and thrall,
Now joy with all the hosts above,
And crown Him Lord of all.

6. Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball.
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all.

7. Oh that, with yonder sacred throng,
We at His feet may fall;
We'll join the everlasting song.
And crown Him Lord of all.

John Rippon, 1787, Hymn 177

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem
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.

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.

Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.






Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
the wormwood and the gall,
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.
