Hymn #17: Crown Him with Many Crowns

We did this version of Crown Him with Many Crowns as a prelude on Easter at Hope Chapel.  We had a string ensemble live, which gave it a bit of a different feel, but I substituted some extra guitars, piano, and about 10 vocal tracks.  Hope you enjoy.

Crown Him with Many Crowns

(listen | chart)

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.

Crown Him the Lord of love! Behold HIs hands and side–
Rich wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou hast died for me:
Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of life! Who triumphed o’er the grave,
Who 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 the Lord of heaven! One with the Father known,
One with the Spirit through Him given from yonder glorious throne.
To Thee be endless praise, for Thou for us hast died.
Be Thou, O Lord, through endless days adored and magnified!

    Dude that was beautiful. We so missed the Lenten and Easter service this year. Did you write that music, or someone else? I love it!

      Hey Dave, we missed you guys too. Yes, this my original music to the text by Matthew Bridges (1850s, I think). Glad you liked it!
