All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name / Diadem

[ Roud 17726 ; Ballad Index Rd017726 ; words Edward Perronet, 1779; music James Ellor, 1838]

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name is a carol from the South Yorkshire village carols tradition. Waterson:Carthy sang it to the tune Diadem, written by James Ellor in 1838, on their 2006 album Holy Heathens and the Old Green Man. Martin Carthy commented in the album's sleeve notes:

… On the other hand you get the triumphal Diadem which Norma and I heard sung by South Yorkshire carollers a few years ago, and they still can be heard these days between Armistice Day and Christmas.

Jon Boden, Jess and Richard Arrowsmith, Gavin Davenport, Fay Hield and Sam Sweeney sang Diadem at the Royal Hotel in Dungworth as the December 13, 2010 entry of Jon's project A Folk Song a Day.

Kate Rusby sang Diadem on her 2011 Christmas album, While Mortals Sleep.

Lyrics

The Waterson sing DiademJon Boden et all sing Diadem

All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall,
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall,
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Ye ransomed from the fall;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

Ye saints redeemed of Adam's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Ye ransomed from the fall;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread you trophies at His feet
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread you trophies at His feet
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We at His feet may fall!
Join in the everlasting song,
And crown Him, crown Him,
Crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

And crown Him, Lord of all,
Crown Him, Lord of all,
Crown Him, Lord of all,
And crown Him, Lord of all.

And crown Him, Lord of all,
And crown Him, Lord of all,
And crown Him, Lord of all,
And crown Him, Lord of all.
