{Intro}
G♯m   E2   B   G♯m    E2    F♯sus
G♯m   E2   B   F♯/A♯  G♯m   E2   F♯sus
{Verse 1}
   G♯m            E   B
He came for all humanity
  G♯m                   E     F♯sus   F♯
Exchanged His crown for suffering
  G♯m                E    B   F♯/A♯
Became the Lamb, the offering
G♯m         F♯  B5
Buried in humility
{Verse 2}
   G♯m                E      B
He left our sin there in the ground
    G♯m                 E        F♯sus   F♯
But death just couldn't keep Him down
G♯m             E      B   F♯/A♯
All of hell was trembling
   G♯m           F♯   B5
As Jesus rose in majesty
{Chorus 1}
G♯m   F♯/A♯    B     G♯m   F♯/A♯    B   
Long  live the King, long  live the King
Bsus/G♯   B/F♯   F♯sus   Bsus/G♯   B/F♯   F♯add4
King      Je  -  sus,    King      Je  -  sus
G♯m   F♯/A♯    B     G♯m   F♯/A♯    B   
Long  live the King, long  live the King
Bsus/G♯   F♯sus   F♯   B5
King      Je    -      sus
{Verse 3}
   G♯m              E     B
He placed His robe around me
    G♯m               E    F♯sus   F♯
And wrapped me in His victory
   G♯m                 E    B   F♯/A♯
My name was changed at Calvary
G♯m          F♯   B5
Adopted into royalty. Now I sing
{Chorus 2}
G♯m   F♯/A♯    B     B/D♯  F♯       B   
Long  live the King, long  live the King
E      B/F♯   F♯sus   Bsus/G♯   B/F♯   F♯add4/A♯
King   Je  -  sus,    King      Je  -  sus
G♯m   F♯/A♯    B     B/D♯  F♯       B   
Long  live the King, long  live the King
Bsus/G♯   F♯sus   F♯   B5
King      Je    -      sus
{Bridge}
    E2       B          F♯sus    G♯m7
And He shall reign, yes He shall reign
E2       B        G♯m7     F♯sus
He shall reign forever and ever
E2       B          F♯sus    G♯m7
He shall reign, and He shall reign
E2       B        G♯m7     F♯sus   F♯7   E2   B
He shall reign forever and e   -   ver   more
{Verse 4}
    G♯m                 E       B
One day He'll split the eastern sky
    G♯m                 E          F♯sus   F♯
And all the saints will lift their eyes
    G♯m           E           B   F♯/A♯
The King of glory will come down
G♯m         F♯  B5
And ev'ry knee will finally bow

He came for all humanity
Exchanged His crown for suffering
Became the Lamb, the offering
Buried in humility

He left our sin there in the ground
But death just couldn't keep Him down
All of hell was trembling
As Jesus rose in majesty

Long live the King, long live the King
King Jesus, King Jesus
Long live the King, long live the King
King Jesus

He placed His robe around me
And wrapped me in His victory
My name was changed at Calvary
Adopted into royalty. Now I sing

Long live the King, long live the King
King Jesus, King Jesus
Long live the King, long live the King
King Jesus

And He shall reign, yes He shall reign
He shall reign forever and ever
He shall reign, and He shall reign
He shall reign forever and ever more

One day He'll split the eastern sky
And all the saints will lift their eyes
The King of glory will come down
And every knee will finally bow
