Up to thy gracious throne,
of thine incarnate Son.
A peace 'twixt earth and heaven: Salvation, through his only Name,
To all mankind is given. 3 The gift unspeakable
We thankfully receive,
And to thy glory live.
The new-born Prince of peace, And meekly in his spirit live,
And in his love increase. 5 Till he convey ng home,
Cry every soul aloud, -
And take us up to God. 125

to the Lord's anointed,
To set the captive free;
And rule in equity.
And bid the weak be strong:
Their darkness turn to light,
Were precious in his sight.
Upon the fruitful earth,
Spring in his path to birth :
, And righteousness, in fountains,
From hill to valley flow.
4 To him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows ascend; His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end :
His covenant remove;
That name to us is Love.

Reigning in His kingdom of grace.
LL glory to God in the sky, O Jesus, exalted on high,
Appear, our omnipotent Lord; Who, meanly in Bethlehem born,
Didst stoop to redeem a lost race: Once more to thy creatures returu,
And reign in thy kingdom of grace. 2 0 wouldst thou again be made known,
Again in thy Spirit descend; And set up, in each of thine own,
A kingdom that never shall end ! Thou only art able to bless,
And make the glad nations obey, And bid the dire enmity cease,
And bow the whole world to thy sway.
3 0, come to thy servants again,
Who long thiñe appearing to know; Thy quiet and peaceable reign
In mercy establish below: All sorrow before thee shall fly,
And anger and hatred be o'er; And envy and malice shall die, And discord afflict us no more.
Whom angels dimly see,
Or God appear to me!
Himself to worms impart!
And speak it to my heart.
The streaming blood divine !
And live and die below,
And my Redeemer know
To all eternity!
To praise the Saviour's name.
He left his throne above,
He few on wings of love.
