CHRIST'S KINGDOM AMONG THE GENTILES, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Last Line: Their early blessings on his name.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ; Religion; Theology

JESUS shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run, --
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

From north to south the princes meet
To pay their homage at his feet,
While western empires own their Lord,
And savage tribes attend His Lord.

To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And endless praises crown His head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song,
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His name.
