A hymn for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Without donors, Aleteia's future is uncertain.
Join our Lenten Campaign 2024.
All hail the power 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 18th-century hymn for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary time was penned by Edward Perronet, an Anglican minister from a long line of ministers. Perronet is best known for a collection of poetry he published several years before his death, along with his work as a hymn writer, of which “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name” is his most famous work.

The text was set to music by Oliver Holden, one of the first hymn composers from the US. The title of the melody is “CORONATION,” which is fitting for the triumphant, procession-like notation.
