1 Ascend thy throne, almighty King,
And spread thy glories all abroad;
Let thine own arm salvation bring,
And be thou known the gracious God.
2 Let millions bow before thy seat,
Let humble mourners seek thy face,
Bring daring rebels to thy feet,
Subdued by thy victorious grace.
3 O let the kingdoms of the world
Become the kingdoms of the Lord;
Let saints, and angels praise thy name,
Be thou thro' heaven and earth ador'd.

Ascend Thy throne, Almighty King. B. Beddome. [Missions.] A short hymn in 3 stanzas of 4 lines on behalf of Missions, which was given in Rippon's Selection, 1787, No. 370, and repeated unaltered in all subsequent editions of the same. It was also included in R. Hall's edition of Beddome's Hymns, 1817. The use of this hymn in Great Britain has almost ceased, but in America it is given in a great number of collections, and is most popular.
