Verse 1
Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
Earth's remotest regions shall His empire be;
they that wilds inhabit shall their worship bring,
kings shall render tribute, nations serve our King.

Refrain:
Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
earth's remotest regions shall his empire be.

Verse 2:
When the needy seek Him, He will mercy show;
all the weak and helpless shall His pity know;
He will surely save them from oppression's might,
for their lives are precious in His holy sight.

Refrain

Verse 3:
Ever and forever shall His name endure,
long as suns continue it shall stand secure;
and in Him forever all men shall be blessed,
and all nations hail Him King of kings confessed.

Refrain

Verse 4:
Unto God Almighty joyful Zion sings;
He alone is glorious, doing wondrous things.
Evermore, you people, bless His matchless name,
His eternal glory through the earth proclaim.
