Christ My Song - 1452

Crowns of glory, ever bright
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Crowns of glory, ever bright.

"I am he that liveth and was dead." (Revelation 1,18)

1. Crowns of glory, ever bright,
  rest upon the victor's head:
crowns of glory are his right,
  his "who liveth and was dead".

2. Jesus fought and won the day;
  such a day was never fought;
well his people now may say,
  see what God, our God, has wrought.

3. He subdued the pow'rs of hell;
  in the fight he stood alone;
all his foes before him fell,
  by his single arm o'erthrown.

4. They have fallen to rise no more:
  final is the foe's defeat:
Jesus triumphed by his pow'r,
  and his triumph is complete.

5. His the fight, the arduous toil;
  his the honours of the day;
his the glory and the spoil;
  Jesus bears them all away!

6. Now proclaim his deeds afar;
  fill the world with his renown:
his alone the victor's car;
  his the everlasting crown.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 34.
