Crown Him

I recently bought the new Fernando Ortega CD which is titled "The Shadow of Your Wings: Hymns and Sacred Songs" I love this CD it's a powerful testimony to the Lord and I have a hard time taking it out of the CD player to listen to my daily sermons. There is one track you must hear it's the track titled "Crown Him With Many Crowns" it's a rendition of the ole hymn by Mat­thew Bridg­es and it's just absolutely beautiful.

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee, And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side, Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified. No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight, But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave, And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save. His glories now we sing, Who died, and rose on high, Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time, Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime. All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me; Thy praise and glory shall never, never fail throughout eternity.
