Crown Him with Many Crowns (#28)    
(solo recording, 2:51)

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
Through all eternity

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 wand'ring eye
At mysteries so bright

Crown Him the Lord of life
Who triumphed o'er the grave
And rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save

His glories now we sing
Who died, and rose on high
Who died, eternal life to bring
And lives that death may die

All hail, Redeemer, hail!
For Thou hast died for me
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity
