Jesus shall reign where’er the sun

Prompted by today’s entry (for Christ the King Sunday) at Conjubilant With Song, this thread is for the suggestion of changes to the Isaac Watts text, Jesus shall reign where’er the Sun. As I said in a comment at C.W.S., I do think “if I were doing the alterations on this one I would be likely to alter “peculiar” to something less peculiar. Like Jehovah’s “awful” throne, “peculiar” has (I think) acquired enough of an aroma of the pejorative for a large enough percentage of today’s anglophone congregants to warrant if not demand emendation. What the best alternative might be I’m not so sure, and I’d welcome suggestions…”
