Crown Him With Many Crowns

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 son of God,
Before the world began,
And ye who tread where he hath trod,
Crown him the son of man;
Who every grief hath known
That wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for his own,
That all in him may rest.

Crown him the Lord of love,
Behold his hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visiblel above,
In beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his wondering eye
At mysteries so bright.

Crown him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed over the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife
For those he came to save.
Hi glories now we sing,
Who died and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
And lives that death may die.

Crown him the Lord of lords,
Who over all doth reign,
Who once on earth th'incarnate Word,
For ransomed sinner slain,
Now lives in realms of light,
Where saints with angels sing
Their songs before him day and night,
Their God, Redeemer, King.

The video for this is from the 50th coronation anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II. It is a magnificent rendition, which is fitting for such a magnificent picture.
