Thomas Kelly, 1804

Hark, ten thousand harps and voices
Sound the note of praise above!
Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices,
Jesus reigns, the God of love;
See, He sits on yonder throne;
Jesus rules the world alone.
Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen!

2. Well may angels bright and glorious
Sing the praises of the Lamb;
While on earth He proved victorious,
Now He bears a matchless name.
Well may angels sing of Him;
Heaven supplies no richer theme.
Refrain:

3. Jesus, hail! Whose glory brightens
All above, and gives it worth;
Lord of life, Thy smile enlightens,
Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth;
When we think of love like Thine,
Lord, we own it love divine.
Refrain:

4. Come, ye saints, unite your praises
With the angels round His throne;
Soon, we hope, our God will raise us
To the place where He is gone.
Meet it is that we should sing,
Glory, glory, to our King!
Refrain:

5. Sing how Jesus came from heaven,
How He bore the cross below,
How all power to Him is given,
How He reigns in glory now.
'Tis a great and endless theme
O, 'tis sweet to sing of Him.
Refrain:

6. King of glory, reign forever!
Thine an everlasting crown.
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
Those whom Thou hast made Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face.
Refrain:

7. Savior, hasten Thine appearing;
Bring, O bring the glorious day,
When, the awful summons bearing,
Heaven and earth shall pass away;
Then with golden harps we'll sing,
"Glory, glory to our King!"
Refrain:
