HEAR the royal proclamation,

The glad tidings of salvation,

Publishing to every creature,

To the ruin'd sons of nature,

Jesus-reigns-he reigns victorious,

Over heaven and earth most glorious,

Jesus reigns.

See the royal banners flying,

Hear the heralds loudly crying,

Rebel sinners, royal favor

Now is offered by the Saviour,

Lo! he reigns, &c.

Hear ye sons of wrath and ruin,

Who have wrought your own undoing;

Here is Life and free salvation,

Offer'd to the whole creation.

Jesus reigns, &c.

It was for you that Jesus died,

For you, he was cruicifi'd,

Conquer'd death, and rose to heaven,

Life eternal through him is given.

Lo! he reigns, &c.

Turn unto the Lord most holy,

Shun the paths of vice and folly-

Turn, or you are lost for ever;

O! now turn to God your Saviour,

Lo! he reigns, &c.

Here is wine, and milk, and honey,

Come, and purchase without money,

Mercy, like a flowing fountain,

Streaming from the holy mountain.

Jesus reigns, &c.
