Global Hymn Sing – Jesus Shall Reign

Global Hymn Sing – Jesus Shall Reign

We’re joining in on this year’s global hymn sing on February 25. Two years ago (we missed last year’s) we participated with an estimated 1,158,465 people singing in 100 different countries in 11 different languages. We still Facing a Task Unfinished from time to time as a result. Check out what that looked like around the world in the video below.

This year’s global song is appropriately Jesus Shall Reign. Here are the lyrics. We’d encourage you to familiarize yourself with them, teach them to your kids, and even help those who can’t read memorize them so that they can participate with us on Sunday, February 25th. There’s a lyric video below as well.

JESUS SHALL REIGN

VERSE
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

VERSE
Blessings abound where’er He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blessed.

CHORUS
To our King be highest praise
Rising through eternal days
Just and faithful – He shall reign.
Jesus shall reign

VERSE
Where He displays His healing power,
Death and the curse are found no more:
In Him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost

VERSE
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early praises to His Name.

CHORUS
To our King be highest praise
Rising through eternal days
Just and faithful – He shall reign.
Jesus shall reign

VERSE
Let every creature rise and bring
Blessing and honour to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!

CHORUS
To our King be highest praise
Rising through eternal days
Just and faithful – He shall reign.
Jesus shall reign
