Whence those unusual bursts of joy
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Whence those usual bursts of joy.

"And he hath on his vesture, and on his thigh, a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords." (Revelation 21,16)

1. Whence those unusual bursts of joy,
  whose sound through heaven rings?
They welcome Jesus to the sky,
  and crown him "King of kings". PDF - Midi

2. At sight of him, yon seraphs bright
  exulting clap their wings;
they hail their Lord with new delight,
  and crown him "King of kings".

3. The brightest angel glory boasts,
  to him his tribute brings,
and joins high heav'n's assembled hosts,
  to crown him "King of kings".

4 . Look up, ye saints, and while ye gaze,
  forget all earthly things:
unite to sing the Saviour's praise,
  and crown him "King of kings".

5. While heav'n, in honour of his name,
  with exultation sings,
his saints on earth will own his claim,
  and crown him "King of kings".

6. When here, he bore our sin and shame;
  and thence our comfort springs:
'tis meet we should exalt his name,
  and crown him "King of kings".

7. We hope, ere long, beyond those clouds,
  to tune celestial strings;
and join with heav'n's exulting crowds,
  to crown him "King of kings".

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 48.
