Encore, ‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

I’ve been leaning on the power of Jesus’ name pretty heavily of late, and it’ll certainly do for a bonus hymn today: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, written by Edward Perronet in 1779.

‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Christ Pantokrator, Ruler of All–and He is ours, and we are His.

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, written by Edward Perronet in 1779, is sung to severdal different melodies, depending on whose hymnal you’re using. It has been nicknamed “the National Anthem of Christianity”–I guess because it’s sung in so many churches, belonging to so many denominations.

‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

This 18th century hymn by Edward Perronet, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, joyfully proclaims the crown rights of Jesus Christ Our Lord, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, whose right it is to rule Creation. Almighty God has promised that He shall reign forever.

Sing it loud!

‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

This is the hymn I had in me this morning: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, by Edward Perronet in 1780. This hymn was sung, I remember vividly, at our open-air hilltop chapel at Y camp, one Sunday morning; and the counselors’ choir sang it with a will. I will never forget what a beautiful day that was, with fields and woodlands spread out below us in every direction. How wonderful are the works of your hands, O Lord!
