The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
Hymns for 11 AM Mass, Sunday, November 21, 2021

#720 "Crown Him with Many Crowns"
Crown him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon his throne;
All kingdoms of the earth resound
With praise of him alone.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who died for thee,
And hail him as thy risen King
For all eternity.

Crown him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed o'er the grave,
Who on the third day did arise
And hope to sinners gave.
His glory now we sing,
Who died and rose on high,
Who came eternal life to bring,
Who lives, no more to die.

Crown him the Lord of heav'n,
Where angels sing above;
Crown him the King, to whom is giv'n
The wondrous name of Love.
Crown him with many crowns,
As thrones before him fall.
Throughout the earth his praise resounds
For he is Lord of all.

#31 "We Gather Together"
We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
He chastens and hastens his will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing:
Sing praises to his name; he forgets not his own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Whose kingdom calls all to the love which endures.
So from the beginning the fight we were winning:
You, Lord, were at our side; all glory be yours!

We all do extol you, our leader triumphant,
And pray that you still our defender will be.
Let your congregation escape tribulation:
Your name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!

#716 "At the Name of Jesus"
At the Name of Jesus ev'ry knee shall bow,
Ev'ry tongue confess him King of glory now;
'Tis the Father's pleasure we should call him Lord,
Who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

Humbled for a season to receive a Name
From the lips of sinners, unto whom he came,
Faithfully he bore it spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious, when through death he passed.

Bore it up triumphant, with its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures, to the central height,
To the throne of Godhead, to the Father's breast;
Filled it with the glory of that perfect rest.
