1 The ends of all the earth shall hear
and turn unto the Lord in fear;
all kindreds of the earth shall own
and worship him as God alone.
All earth to him her homage brings,
the Lord of lords, the King of kings.
2 For his the kingdom, his of right,
he rules the nations by his might.
All earth to him her homage brings,
The Lord of lords, the King of kings. [Refrain]
3 Both rich and poor, both bond and free
shall worship him on bended knee,
and children's children shall proclaim
the glorious honor of his name. [Refrain]
4 The Lord's unfailing righteousness
all generations shall confess;
from age to age they shall be taught
what wondrous works the Lord has wrought. [Refrain]

The text is based on Psalm 22:27-31, the "vow of praise" part of this lament psalm (see PHH 22 for further comments on Psalm 22). It was first published with Doane's tune in the 1912 Psalter and in every edition of the Psalter Hymnal.
Like 541, this text confesses with great certainty the worldwide rule of Christ, the Lord of lords and King of kings. All peoples and nations will submit to his reign (st. 1-2), for both rich and poor and future generations will confess the mighty deeds of the Lord (st. 3-4).
At the beginning or end of regular Sunday worship; mission services; ecumenical events; during Epiphany and Pentecost seasons; fitting for Worldwide Communion, All Nations Sunday, and similar church festivals.
