Crown Him


Crown him the Lord of light,
Who o’er a darkened world
In robes of glory infinite
His fiery flag unfurled.
And bore it raised on high,
In heaven–in earth–beneath,
To all the sign of victory
O’er Satan, sin, and death.

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.

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

Crown Him

Crown him the Son of God
Before the worlds 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

Crown him with crowns of gold,
All nations great and small,
Crown him, ye martyred saints of old,
The Lamb once slain for all;
The Lamb once slain for them
Who bring their praises now,
As jewels for the diadem
That girds his sacred brow.

Crown Him

Crown him the Lord of heaven!
One with the Father known,–
And the blest Spirit, through him given
From yonder triune throne!
All hail! Redeemer,–Hail!
For Thou hast died for me;
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity!

Crown Him

Crown him the Lord of years!
The Potentate of time,–
Creator of the rolling spheres,
Ineffably sublime!
Glassed in a sea of light,
Where everlasting waves
Reflect his throne,–the Infinite!
Who lives,–and loves–and saves.

Crown Him

Crown him the Lord of peace!
Whose power a scepter sways,
From pole to pole,–that wars may cease,
Absorbed in prayer and praise:
his reign shall know no end,
And round his pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown Him

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 burning eye
At mysteries so bright!

Crown Him with Many Crowns Lyrics

Crown him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon his throne;
Hark! how the heavenly 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.

They Will Think It Is Love

by

Before your children came,
They were told that you would love them,
So, whatever you do, how ever you treat them,
To them, it is love.

If you are cruel to them,
They will think it is love.
If you yell at them,
They will think it is love.
If you neglect them,
They will think it is love.
If you walk away from them,
They will think it is love.

And if you are kind to them,
They will think it is love.
And if you are gentle with them,
They will think it is love.
And if you listen to them,
They will think it is love,
And if you hold them tightly,
They will think it is love.
Because we cannot point to anything that exists and say,
This is love.

So you will teach your children
Every day they are with you and what it is.
And one day, when someone else treats them
The way you treated them, they will say,
“This is love.”

So, teach them well.
No matter what you were taught yourself.
No matter how you were loved yourself.

Egotism

by

Egotism

“Egotism is pathological self-obsession, a reaction to anxiety about whether one really does count. It is a form of acute self-consciousness and can be prevented and healed only by the experience of being adequately loved. It is, indeed, a desperate response to frustration of the need we all have to count for something and held to be irreplaceable, without price.
