Revelation 19:11–16 (Listen)

The Rider on a White Horse

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in1 blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule2 them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

Hymn: TLH 341, st. 1,5: Crown Him with Many Crowns

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



1. 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. 

5. Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, 
Enthroned in worlds above, 
Crown Him the King to whom is given 
The wondrous name of Love. 
Crown Him with many crowns 
As thrones before Him fall; 
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns 
For He is King of all.
