A Hymn of Glory Let Us Sing

Full Text

1 A hymn of glory let us sing,
new hymns throughout the world shall ring;
By a new way none ever trod
Christ shares once more the throne of God.

2 You are a present joy, O Christ,
triumphant love once sacrificed,
And great the light in you we see
to guide us to eternity.

to your blessed name all knees shall bow;
You are, while endless ages run,
in Triune Godhead ever One.
