While listening to Truth for Life this morning, I heard Alistair Begg read the lyrics to a wonderful hymn with which I was unfamiliar. It was so powerful and such a blessing, I wanted to share it. It’s a quick read – 1-2 minutes – and well worth your time. Be blessed. FLM
“Sing We the King Who is Coming to Reign” (or “When Jesus is King”)
Sing we the king who is coming to reign,
Glory to Jesus, the Lamb that was slain.
Life and salvation His empire shall bring,
Joy to the nations when Jesus is king.
Come let us sing, praise to our king,
Jesus our king, Jesus our king,
This is our song, who to Jesus belong:
Glory to Jesus, to Jesus our king.
All men shall dwell in His marvelous light,
Races long severed His love shall unite,
Justice and truth from His scepter shall spring,
Wrong shall be ended when Jesus is king.
All shall be well in His kingdom of peace,
Freedom shall flourish and wisdom increase,
Foe shall be friend when His triumph we sing,
Sword shall be sickle when Jesus is king.
Souls shall be saved from the burden of sin,
Doubt shall not darken His witness within,
Hell hath no terrors, and death hath no sting;
Love is victorious when Jesus is king.
Kingdom of Christ, for thy coming we pray,
Hasten, O Father, the dawn of the day
When this new song Thy creation shall sing,
Satan is vanquished, and Jesus is king.
