10893. Jesus, Our Lord, Ascend Thy Throne

1 Jesus, our Lord, ascend Thy throne,
And near the Father sit;
In Sion shall Thy power be known,
And make Thy foes submit.

2 What wonders shall Thy Gospel do!
Thy converts shall surpass
The numerous drops of morning dew,
And own Thy sovereign grace.

3 God hath pronounced a firm decree,
Nor changes what He swore:
“Eternal shall Thy priesthood be,
When Adam is no more.

4 "Melchizedek, that wondrous priest,
That king of high degree,
That holy man who Abraham blessed
Was but a type of Thee."

5 Jesus our priest for ever lives
To plead for us above;
Jesus our king for ever gives
The blessings of His love.

6 God shall exalt His glorious head,
And His high throne maintain;
Shall strike the powers and princes dead
Who dare oppose His reign.
