Week 40 | September 30 – October 6, 2018

The music of this week, All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name by Edward Perronet (Music by: Oliver Holden), is a hymn of praise declaration and it is published in 2,919 hymnals. This hymn describes the glory of God and reminds us of the power in the name of Jesus as written in the book of Philippians 2:9-11: “…at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Truly, our God reigns in majesty and He is to be crowned the Lord of all. This hymn is suitable for use as a hymn of praise at the beginning of services such as Ascension Day services, processionals, or any celebration of Christ’s authority and victory.

1. All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all.

2. Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
And crown him Lord of all.

3. Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him Lord of all.

4. Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all.

5. Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
Who from his altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod,
And crown him Lord of all.

6. O that with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,
And crown him Lord of all.
