Representative Text

1 All hail, victorious Savior, hail!
I bow to Thy command;
And own that David’s royal key
Well fits Thy sovereign hand.

2 Open the treasures of Thy love,
And shed Thy gifts abroad;
Unveil to my rejoicing eyes
The temple of my God.

3 There as a pillar let me stand
On an eternal base;
Upreared by Thine almighty hand
And polished by Thy grace.

4 There deep engraven let me bear
The title of Thy God;
And mark the new Jerusalem,
As my secure abode.

5 In lasting characters inscribe
Thine own belovèd name,
That endless ages there may read
The great Emmanuel’s claim.

6 Lead on, my General, I defy
What earth or hell can do;
Thy conduct, and this glorious hope
Shall bear Thy soldier through.
