Great King of Kings

Download a MIDI of this hymn

Great King of kings and Lord of lords,
Ruler of all creation,
Whose royal right and sov'reign sway
Extend to ev'ry nation.

Refrain:
Thee, God's Anointed, hail we our King:
Pledging allegiance,
tribute we bring;
Firm in our faith to Thee we cling!

2. Thy claim to Kingship was confirmed
When, to our earth descending,
Thou didst redeem our fallen race
To share Thy reign unending.
(Refrain)

3. "Thy Kingdom come" shall be our pray'r,
Souls to Thy service leading,
Till all the world is won to Thee
And heeds Thy tender pleading.
(Refrain)
