In a world filled with noise and chaos, the music video featuring Taryn Harbridge playing ‘Crown Him With Many Crowns’ on her violin provides a moment of reflection and worship. Set against a backdrop of blooming apple blossom trees and bees pollinating wildflowers, the video visually captures the essence of renewal and rebirth, symbolizing the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV), “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
Taryn Harbridge, known for her covers of Christian hymns and original compositions, dedicated her rendition of this hymn to glorify God, encourage and uplift the body of Christ, and share the Good News of the gospel with the world. The hymn itself, penned by Matthew Bridges and Godfred Thring in 1851 and later supplemented by six additional stanzas from Anglican minister Godfrey Thring in 1874, is a tribute to Jesus, the Lamb of God, who sits upon the throne.
The hymn lyrics, inspired by Revelation 19:12 (NIV), which states, “His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself,” encourages believers to awake their souls and sing praises to the One who died for humanity, hailing Him as the matchless king through all eternity. The video encapsulates this message, with Taryn gracefully moving amidst the scenic surroundings, as if dancing with joy for the Savior.
Encouragement and worship are intertwined in the video, prompting viewers to reflect on the sacrificial love of Jesus and to embrace the hope and joy found in His resurrection. As Taryn noted in her YouTube video caption, her ultimate goal in making music videos is to glorify God and share the gospel with the world. This video serves as a beautiful and inspiring reminder of that mission. Watch the video below to experience the beauty and uplifting message of ‘Crown Him With Many Crowns.’
