[By Duncan.

of Jesus' name,

AL Let angels prostate fall;

Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him-Lord of all.

2. Let high-born seraphs tune the lyre,
And as they tune it, fall

Before his face, who tunes their choir,
And crown him-Lord of all.

3. Crown him, ye morning stars of light,
He fix'd this floating ball;

Now hail the strength of Israel's might,
And crown him-Lord of all.

4. Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him-Lord of all.

5. Let ev'ry tribe and ev'ry tongue,
That hear the Saviour's call,
Now shout in universal song,
And crown him-Lord of ell.
