1. All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

2. Crown him, ye morning stars of light,
who fixed this floating ball;
now hail the Strength of Israel's might,
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

3. Crown him ye martyrs of your God,
who from his altar call:
extol the stem of Jesse's rod,
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

4. Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace.
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

5. Hail him, ye heirs of David's line,
whom David Lord did call,
the God incarnate, Man divine,
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

6. Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
the wormwood and the gall,
go spread your trophies at his feet,
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

7. Let every tribe and every tongue
that bound creation's call,
now shout in universal song
and crown him, crown him, crown him
crown him Lord of all!

 Final two verses from Henry Sloane Coffin and Ambrose White Vernon, eds., Hymns of the Kingdom of God:

4. Let every kindred, every tribe,
    On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
    And crown him, crown him, crown him
    Crown him Lord of all!

5. O that with yonder sacred throng
    We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
    And crown him, crown him, crown him
    Crown him Lord of all!

The editors note that the fourth verse was "recast" (compare verse seven, above), and that the fifth verse here was added by John Rippon, 1787.
