Author: C. Stewart Calverly Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #11994 Meter: 18.104.22.168 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal First Line: Sovereign of Heav’n, who didst prevail Lyrics: 1 Sovereign of Heav’n, who didst prevail
O’er death, and with Thy life-blood dye
The path by which we hope to scale
Yon starry sky.
2 Look down in mercy from Thy throne
At God’s right hand, O Lord, and see
Us who are lingering here alone,
Orphaned of Thee.
3 Hear us, O Christ, for we were born
Out of the travail of Thy soul;
When by the spear Thy side was torn
To make us whole.
4 Thy toils and anguish at an end,
Thou wearest now a glorious crown:
The hour is come; send, Savior, send
Thy Spirit down. Languages: English Tune Title: ALMSGIVING
Sovereign Of Heav'n
