The crown of universal monarchy!
from Spurgeonís, "JESUS, THE SHEPHERD"
Jesus Christ is King in the world today!
The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice!
Jesus Christ wears the crown
of universal monarchy!
Nothing happens but that which Jesus
permits, ordains, and overrules!
Let empires go to wreck, it is Christ who
breaks them with a rod of iron, and shivers
them like potters' vessels.
Let conflagrations burn down cities, and let
diseases devastate nations; let war succeed
to war, and pestilence to famine, yet still
Jesus rules all things well, and we know that
all things work together for good to those who
love God, who are called according to his purpose!
