Christ Shall Have Dominion

Music:

ST GERTRUDE

Lyrics:

Christ shall have dominion
over land and sea,
earth’s remotest regions
shall his empire be;
they that wilds inhabit
shall their worship bring,
kings shall render tribute,
nations serve our King.

[Refrain:]
Christ shall have dominion
over land and sea,
earth’s remotest regions
shall his empire be.

When the needy seek him,
He will mercy show;
yea, the weak and helpless
shall his pity know;
He will surely save them
from oppression’s might,
for their lives are precious
in his holy sight.
[Refrain]

Ever and for ever
shall his Name endure,
long as suns continue
it shall stand secure;
and in him for ever
all men shall be blest,
and all nations hail him
King of kings confessed.
[Refrain]

Unto God Almighty
joyful Zion sings;
He alone is glorious,
doing wondrous things.
Evermore, ye people,
bless his glorious name,
His eternal glory
through the earth proclaim.
[Refrain]
