1 Head of the hosts in glory!
We joyfully adore thee,
Thy Church below,
Blending with those on high--
Where through the azure sky
Thy saints in ecstasy
For ever glow!
2 Angels! archangels! glorious
Guards of the church victorious!
Worship the Lamb!
One of the Three by right--
Love, majesty, and might--
The great I AM!
3 Martyrs! whose mystic legions
March o'er yon heavenly regions
In triumph round:
Wave high your banners, wave!
Your God, our Saviour, clave
For death itself a grave,
In hell profound!
4 Saints! in fair circles, casting
Rich trophies everlasting
At Jesus' feet
Amidst our rude alarms,
We stretch forth suppliant arms,
That we, too, safe from harms,
In Heaven may meet!
5 Saviour! in glory beaming,
With radiance brightly streaming,
Enthroned in power,
Grant, by Thy awful name,
That we through flood and flame
The Gospel may proclaim,
Till life's last hour.
