2 O Bringer of salvation,
Of love beyond our thought;
We worship Thee, we bless Thee,
3 In Thee all fulness dwelleth,
We worship Thee, we bless Thee, To Thee alone we sing;
We praise Thee, and confess Thee Our glorious Lord and King.
4 O grant the consummation
In endless adoration,
Then shall we praise and bless The
And evermore confess Thee
And hail Him as thy match-less King Through all e ter ni
2 Crown Him the Lord of love:
Behold His hands and side, Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified:
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye At mysteries so bright.
3 Crown Him the Lord of peace;
Whose power a sceptre sways From pole to pole, that wars may cease, Absorbed in prayer and praise:
His reign shall know no end;
4 Crown Him the Lord of years,
All hail, Redeemer, hail!

1 Christ, above all glo- ry seated, King tri-um-phant, strong to save,
Dying, Thou hast death de-feat-ed, Bur-ied, Thou hast spoiled the grave. A-MEN.

2 Thou art gone where now is given What no mortal might could gain, On the eternal throne of heaven
In Thy Father's power to reign.
4 We, O Lord, with hearts adoring,
3 There Thy kingdoms all adore Thee, 5 So when Thou again in glory
Heaven above and earth below;
While the depths of hell before Thee
6 Hail! all hail!
On the clouds of heaven shalt shine. We Thy flock may stand before Thee, Owned for evermore as Thine.
In Thee confiding,
Jesus, Thee shall all adore,
In Thy Father's might abiding

1 'Tis for conquering kings to gain
2 So no other Name is given
Unto mortals under heaven
3 That which Christ so hardly wrought,
That which He so dearly bought,
That salvation, mortals, say,
4 Rather gladly for that Name
Is not death, but victory.
5 Dost Thou, Jesus, condescend
