Representative Text

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!
Guards of the church victorious,
Worship the Lamb!
Crown Him with crowns of light,
One of the three by right,
Love, majesty, and might,
The great I am!

3 Saviour! in glory beaming
With radiance brightly streaming,
Enthroned in power;
Grant, by thy awful name,
That we thro' flood and flame,
The Gospel may proclaim,
Till life's last hour.
