352. Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor

1 Lord, enthroned in heav'nly splendor,
Mighty Firstborn from the dead,
You alone, our strong Defender,
You lift up your people's head.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Jesus, true and living Bread!
Jesus, true and living Bread!

2 Though the lowliest form once veiled you
As of old in Bethlehem,
Here as there your angels hail you,
Branch and Flow'r of Jesse's stem.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
We in worship join with them;
We in worship join with them.

3 Paschal Lamb, your off'ring, finished
Once for all when you were slain,
In its fullness undiminished,
Shall forevermore remain,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Cleansing souls from ev'ry stain;
Cleansing souls from ev'ry stain.

4 Life-imparting heav'nly Manna,
Stricken Rock with streaming side,
Heav'n and earth with loud hosanna
Worship you, the Lamb who died.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ris'n, ascended, glorified!
Ris'n, ascended, glorified!
