Crown Him With Many Crowns

Here is a bootleg of Crown Him With Many Crowns. It was written by some bloke a long time ago - and Dan Godden has recently written a new tune to it. It is my favourite song at the moment - and I think the best hymn re-write that I know.

A few people (non-CCEC) have mentioned that they wanted to hear it - but it hasn't ever been recorded. So... last night I made a bootleg!! I simply used an mp3 player and sat it on the chair. It was probably a bit close to the front so it distorted a little bit - but it's not too bad. Dan normally plays guitar and leads this song - but he didn't last night. So it's not as tight as normal.

Here's the link again. Let me know what you think...

    Great. Thanks for posting it for this non-CCEC person who had mentioned he wanted to hear it! I can't listen to it at work I don't think but will listen later.

    Great choice of photo! top

    good song... doesn't have the same lyrics as the Crown him with many crowns that i know... but maybe i just didn't recognise it at all. Bit hard to make out the words... perhaps you could post the words Dave??? Good on you Dan! I think you should give Dave a badge for being your no.1 groupie. 2 posts in the space of a week. top

    It isn't as long as the original. There are less verses.

    Crown him with Many Crowns

    Vs1
    Crown him with many crowns,
    The Lamb upon the throne;
    Hear how the heavenly anthem drowns
    All music but its own

    Awake my soul and sing
    Of him who died for me
    And hail him as my matchless king
    Through all eternity
    Eternity.

    Vs2
    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
    That death may die.

    And we cry Great is our King
    And we cry great is our King

    Vs3
    Crown him the Lord of love,
    Behold his hands, his side.
    Those wounds yet visible above,
    In beauty glorified

    All hail, Redeemer, hail!
    For thou has died for me
    Thy praise and glory shall not fail
    Throughout eternity
    Eternity.

    And we cry Great is our King
    And we cry great is our King
    And we cry Great is our King
    And we cry great is our King top

    Good on you Dan! I think you should give Dave a badge for being your no.1 groupie. 2 posts in the space of a week.

    I'm a fan - and a groupie!!
    I might even try to get dan to play a live song on the poddy when we record it tomorrow!!

    And by the way - the 2 posts were over 2 weeks... not one... top

    It's growing on me! I really like how the music lifts up in the second stanza of each verse.

    Has he written out the chords and/or melody?

    What's the copyright situation if I want to use it in church - should I should send a cheque in the mail to Dan? Has he got it covered by the CCLI license? top

    chords - definitely.
    melody - probably not

    ccli - most songs (i'm guessing this) start in a congregation somewhere. before they are given all those copyrights etc... they are given a test run - i guess this post is a view into that test run!

    maybe check with dan as he's the copyright owner... i think it ought to go on our next album - if it does it will get a ccli # then.

    the only cheques ought to be sent to me... I'll pass it on... top
