Words by Thomas Kelly, 1809Tune: CORONAE by William H. Monk, 1871Key signature: F major (1 flat)Public Domain1. Look, ye saints! The sight is glorious: See the Man of Sorrows now; From the fight returned victorious, Ev’ry knee to Him shall bow: Crown Him! Crown Him! Crowns become the Victor's brow.2. Crown the Savior! angels, crown Him! Rich the trophies Jesus brings; In the seat of pow'r enthrone Him, While the vault of heaven rings: Crown the Savior King of kings.3. Sinners in derision crowned Him, Mocking thus the Savior's claim; Saints and angels crowd around Him, Own His title, praise His name: Spread abroad the Victor's fame!4. Hark! those bursts of acclamation! Hark! those loud triumphant chords! Jesus takes the highest station— O what joy the sight affords! King of kings and Lord of lords.
