Representative Text

1 Glory and pow’r and dominion be unto Thee,
Jesus, Thou mighty Redeemer, blest One in Three,
For Thine alone is the right to be Lord of all;
Let ev’ry nation and kindred before Thee fall.

Refrain:
Lord most holy, Lord most mighty,
Thou alone shalt rule the world;
All will worship Thee, all will honor Thee,
And Thy banner of love shall be unfurled.
Holy, holy, holy, O Lord, art Thou;
Creation awaits for Thy coming to reign
When all will before Thee bow.

2 Lo, ev’ry tongue shall confess Thee on that Great Day,
Monarchs shall fall down before Thee, Thy voice obey;
Hearts that despise Thy salvation, Thy name shall own,
All men shall praise Thee, and worship before Thy throne. [Refrain]

3 Come, then, O blessed Redeemer, and claim Thy Bride!
Thou who hast borne our transgressions, and bled and died;
Come in Thy power and glory to rule and reign,
Thine is the right to the kingdom, for Thou wast slain. [Refrain]
