Christ Shall Have Dominion

The Psalter
From Psalm 72, 1912

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.
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;
Yea, 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.
Christ shall have dominion, over land and sea,
Earth’s remotest regions shall His empire be.

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 blest,
And all nations hail Him King of kings confessed.
Christ shall have dominion, over land and sea,
Earth’s remotest regions shall His empire be.

Verse 4
Unto God Almighty joyful Zion sings;
He alone is glorious, doing wondrous things.
Evermore, ye people, bless His glorious Name,
His eternal glory through the earth proclaim.
Christ shall have dominion, over land and sea,
Earth’s remotest regions shall His empire be.
