1 Jesus reigns, in all his glory,
‘Mid the shining courts above;
And the sceptre of his kingdom
Is the sceptre of his love.

Refrain:
“The Lord reigneth,
Let the earth rejoice!
The Lord reigneth,
Let the earth rejoice!”

2 Jesus reigns, the Prince of heaven,
And the heir to joys untold;
And the King in all his beauty,
As we all may yet behold. [Refrain]

3 Jesus reigns, in light eternal,
And amid the sainted throng;
And his name above all others,
Is the glory of their song. [Refrain]

4 Jesus reigns, as our Redeemer,
As the Son, who came to save;
As the blessed Hope of heaven,
By the life he freely gave. [Refrain]
