‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

Sometimes people object when I post this hymn. They would rather someone other than Christ had dominion. Whom that might be, they don’t say. But the right to it belongs to Jesus Christ alone.

Christ Shall Have Dominion, sung by the Grace Community Church in San Antonio, TX. The melody, probably more widely known as Onward, Christian Soldiers, was composed by Arthur Sullivan–of Gilbert and Sullivan fame–in 1871.
