Jesus shall reign where’re the sun…

A hymn to sing along with…

Another hymn by Isaac Watts (1674-1748). It was published in 1719. Based on Psalm 72, it originally had eight stanzas entitled “Christ’s kingdom among the Gentiles”.

The tune provided here is “Galilee”, composed by Philip Armes (1836-1908). He had been a chorister at Norwich Cathedral and later was organist of Durham Cathedral for 45 years.

Other hymns in this collection by Isaac Watts:
Give me the wings of faith
Sweet is the work
O God our help in ages past
How bright those glorious spirits shine
