Crown Him with many crowns

1 Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark, how the heav'nly anthem drowns
All music but its own:
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Thru' all eternity.
2 Crown Him the Virgin's Son:
The God Incarnate born,
Whose arm those crimson trophies won
Which now His brow adorn;
Fruit of the mystic rose,
As of that rose the stem;
The root, whence mercy ever flows,
The Babe of Bethlehem.
3 Crown Him the Lord of love:
Behold His hands and side,
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified:
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye
At mysteries so bright.
4 Crown Him the Lord of heav'n:
One with the Father known,
And the blest Spirit thru' Him giv'n
From yonder triune throne:
All hail, Redeemer, hail,
For Thou hast died for me;
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Thru'out eternity.
