Verse 1
God the uncreated One, the Author of salvation
Who wrote the laws of space and time
And fashioned worlds to His design

Chorus 1
The One whom angel hosts revere
Hung the stars like chandeliers
Numbered every grain of sand
Knows the heart of every man
He is King forever, He is King forever
He is King forevermore

Verse 2
God our fortress and our strength
The Rock on which we can depend
Matchless in His majesty, His power and authority

Chorus 2
Unshaken by the schemes of man
Never changing Great I am
Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall
He is faithful through it all
Crown Him King forever, crown Him King forever
Crown Him King forevermore

Verse 3
Mighty God in mortal flesh, forsaken by a traitor's kiss
The curse of sin and centuries did
Pierce the lowly Prince of Peace

Chorus 3
O lifted high, the sinless man
They crucified the spotless Lamb
Buried by the sons of man but He was
Rescued by the Father's hand
To reign as King forever, reign as King forever
Reign as King forevermore

Verse 4
King eternal, God of grace
We crown You with the highest praise
Heaven shouts and saints adore
You're holy, holy, holy Lord

Chorus 4
What joy in everlasting life
When all is love and faith is sight
Justice rolls and praises rise at the name of Jesus Christ
King of kings forever, King of kings forever
King of kings forevermore
You’re the King of kings forever, King of kings forever
King of kings forevermore
