Lyrics
Lord Jesus, Thou art King;
At God's right hand Thou reignest.
Thy praise the angels sing;
Thy servants Thou sustainest.
The world's release didst Thou
Upon the cross achieve.
Look down in pity now,
Its wretchedness relieve.

Thy gospel free and pure
Send forth to ev'ry nation.
Let all perceive Thy light,
And welcome Thy salvation.
Raise up Thy people true;
Let ev'ry tongue and clime
Sound forth Thy glorious praise,
Exalt Thy name sublime.

Let ev'ry heart and knee
In rev'rence bow before Thee,
And in the very dust
In humbleness adore Thee.
Let ev'ry tongue confess
That God His Son did raise
To be a Saviour, King,
Unto His Father's praise.

Come, joyful day, oh come!
The promised word fulfilling.
The longings of our heart,
The soul's desires stilling.
The Kingdom and the might,
All glory and all pow'r
Be given now of God
To Christ the Lord this hour.

His glorious rule shall be
Unending and unbroken.
The sceptre of His might,
Of peace shall be the token.
Ye nations shout for joy;
His praise let all proclaim.
Let all the earth bring forth
The honor due His name.

The angel host on high
Doth sing His praise in cadence,
With cherub's mighty power,
With seraph's purest radiance.
The choir with golden harps
Beside the crystal sea
Doth raise the glad new song:
"The Lamb's high praise sing we."

Four beings 'round the throne,
The elders there before them,
Exalt God and the Lamb,
His glory spreading o'er them,
Before Him cast their crowns,
Fall down and Him adore,
Who saith: "I was, I am,
And shall be evermore."

Glory to God on high,
To Father, Son and Spirit,
Whose faithful children all
The Kingdom shall inherit.
The host of Thine elect,
The heavens broad and free,
Praise Thee, great Trinity,
Through all eternity.
