All hail the power of Jesu's name! - On the Resurrection
(Edward Perronet/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

On the Resurrection.

1. All hail the power of Jesu's 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,
  who fixed this floating ball;
now hail the strength of Israel's might,
  and crown him Lord of all.

4. 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.

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 bound creation's call,
now shout in universal song,
  the crownèd Lord of all!

Edward Perronet, in: Schaff, Philip: Christ in Song, 1870, 253-254.
