Christian Worship Jesus His Empire Shall Extend

Jesus his empire shall extend;
Beneath his gentle sway
Kings of the earth shall humbly bend,
And his commands obey.

From sea to sea, from shore to shore,
All nations shall be blest;
We hear the noise of war no more,-
He gives his people rest.

As clouds descend in gentle showers,
When spring renews her reign;
And call to life the fragrant flowers
O’er forest, hill and plain;-

So Jesus, by his heavenly grace,
Descends on man below,
And o’er the millions of our race
His gentle blessings flow.

All that the reign of sin destroyed,
The Saviour shall restore;
And, from the treasures of the Lord,
Shall give us blessings more.
