507. Crowns of glory ever bright

1.
Crowns of glory ever bright,
Rest upon the Victor's head ;
Crowns of glory are His right,
His, « who liveth and was dead. »
2.
He subdued the powers of hell,
In the fight He stood alone ;
All His foes before Him fell,
By His single arm o'erthrown.
3.
His the fights, the arduous toil,
His the honours of the day ;
His the glory and the spoil :
Jesus bears them all away.
4.
Now proclaim His deeds afar,
Fill the world with His renown ;
His alone the Victor's car,
His the everlasting crown.
