1 Who is this that comes from E- dom, All His rai- ment stained with blood;

024 54

To the slave pro- claim-ing free-dom; Bring -ing and be - stow - ing good:

Glo-rious in the garb He wears, Glo-rious in the spoils He bears?

A - MEN.

2 'Tis the Saviour, now victorious,
Travelling onward in His might;
''Tis the Saviour, O how glorious

To His people is the sight!
Jesus now is strong to save,
Mighty to redeem the slave.

3 Why that blood His raiment staining?
'Tis the blood of many slain;
Of His foes there's none remaining,

None the contest to maintain: Fallen they are, no more to rise, All their glory prostrate lies.

4 Mighty Victor, reign for ever,

Wear the crown so dearly won; Never shall Thy people, never

Cease to sing what Thou hast done: Thou hast fought Thy people's foes; Thou wilt heal Thy people's woes.

Rev. Thomas Kelly, 1809

Crown Him! Crown Him! Crowns be-come the Vic

2 Crown the Saviour, angels, crown Him;
Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
In the seat of power enthrone Him,
While the vault of heaven rings:
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Crown the Saviour King of kings.

3 Sinners in derision crowned Him,
Mocking thus the Saviour's claim;
Saints and angels crowd around Him,
Own His title, praise His Name:
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Spread abroad the Victor's fame.

4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation!
Hark, those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;
O what joy the sight affords:

Crown Him! Crown Him!
King of kings, and Lord of lords.

The following Hymns are also suitable :

566 Majestic Sweetness sits enthroned.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emman-u- el Shall come to Thee, O Is - ra - el.


2 Draw nigh, O Jesse's Rod, draw nigh, 4 Draw nigh, draw nigh, O David's Key,

To free us from the enemy;

From hell's abyss Thy people save,
And give us victory o'er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

3 Draw nigh, draw nigh, O Morning Star,
And bring us comfort from afar;
And banish far from us the gloom
Of sinful night and endless doom.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

The heavenly gate unfolds to Thee;
Make safe the way that leads on high
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

5 Draw nigh, draw nigh, O Lord of might,
Who once, from Sinai's flaming height,
Didst give the trembling tribes Thy law
In cloud and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

1 Hark, the glad sound! the Saviour comes, The Saviour prom- ised long:

[blocks in formation]

1 Come, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.

2 Israel's Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Rev. Philip Doddridge, 1735

3 Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child, and yet a King,
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.

4 By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
Rev. Charles Wesley, 1744
