HYMNS THAT DEMAND WORSHIP!

Sermon #1

By Ivan G. Casteel

ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS NAME!

Acts 4:12.

Ac 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV)

Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (KJV)

INTRODUCTION: Hymns are written to magnify – to praise and to worship the Lord. Some are written to give the message of salvation or Christian living. This particular hymn renders forth praise and worship to the Lord God Almighty.

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!

Let angels prostrate fall,

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all,

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget

The wormwood and the gall,

Go spread your trophies at His feet,

And crown Him Lord of all.

Go spread your trophies at His feet,

And crown Him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,

Ye ransomed from the fall,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Let ev-‘ry kindred, ev-‘ry tribe

On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all,

To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all!

O that with yonder sacred throng

We at His feet may fall!

We’ll join the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all,

We’ll join the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all!

This hymn was originally written with eight stanzas. Most recent hymn books only have four stanza, some have six. Hardly any have the full eight stanzas.

Edward Perronet, who wrote the marvelous praise hymn, was not one to put up with certain church issues. He was a minister in the Anglican church for some time, but, after becoming fed up with what he felt was the church’s “nonsense”, he became a Methodist, joining up with the Wesleys. As a Methodist he now faced persecution and, as John Wesley recorded, “Edward Perronet was thrown down and rolled in mud and mire.

The eight verses which Perronet wrote have been called "The Coronation Hymn", the clear purpose being to affirm the kingship of Christ. Much of the imagery is drawn from the Book of Revelation (the morning stars and martyrs calling from the altar), and from the Lamentations of Jeremiah (the wormwood and the gall). John Rippon (1751-1836), a Baptist minister from London, in his A Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors (1787) deleted verse two, changed the wording of the eighth, and added a new final verse.

I. STANZA ONE

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!

Let angels prostrate fall,

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all,

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all!

This seems to be an announcement coming from the universe alerting every living creature that Jesus Christ is passing by or entering our presence.
