‘O Worship the King’ (Chris Toml

This hymn, a staple of worship in the church I grew up in, has a complicated history. The lyrics can be traced back to 1561. The music goes back to 1621, and was given a durable form by Johann Haydn early in the 19th century.

I don’t know how many versions of it there are now, but I hope you like this spirited modern adaptation by Chris Tomlin.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
