Hymnal: Church Hymn Book #P.CX (1816) Meter: 220.127.116.11 Hymnal Title: Church Hymn Book Lyrics: 1 Jesus, our Lord ascend thy throne
And near the Father sit;
In Zion shall thy pow'r be known,
And make thy foes submit.
2 What wonders shall thy gospel do!
Thy converts shall surpass
The num'rous drops of morning dew,
And own thy sov'reign grace.
3 God hath pronounc'd a firm decree,
Nor changes what he swore:
"Eternal shall thy priesthood be,
When Aaron is no more.
4 Melchisedek, that wond'rous priest,
That king of high degree,
That holy man who Abrah'm blest
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 pow'rs and princes dead
Who dare oppose his reign. Topics: Christ's Kingdom and Priesthood Scripture: Psalm 110
Jesus, our Lord ascend thy throne
