Lyrics

Verse 1
Christ shall be King of the whole wide world,
He shall be King, let praises ring!
Under His banner of love unfurled,
There shall be gathered the whole wide world,
And Christ shall be the King.

Chorus
Over all the world Christ shall be the King;
Over all the world let His praises ring;
Ev’ry land and nation
Shall know His great salvation;
Christ shall be the King, He shall be the King.

Verse 2
Christ shall be King over land and sea,
He shall be King, let praises ring!
He who redeemed us and made us free,
King of the world shall forever be,
Yes, Christ shall be the King.

Verse 3
Christ shall be King in my heart to-day,
He shall be King, let praises ring!
Over each tho’t and each purpose sway,
All that I have shall be His alway,
For Christ shall be the King.
