Jesus, our risen King

Representative Text

1 Jesus, our risen King,
Glory to Thee we sing,
Praising Thy Name:
Thy love and grace adore,
Which all our sorrows bore;
Singing forevermore,
"Worthy the Lamb."

2 Oh, haste ye ransomed race!
For all His gifts of grace
Praise ye His Name:
He wondrous things hath done:
Triumph o'er death hath won;
Heaven's gate hath open thrown;
"Worthy the Lamb."

3 Come, all ye hosts above!
Join in one song of love,
Praising His Name:
To Him ascribèd be
Honor and majesty
Through all eternity:
"Worthy the Lamb."

4 Blessèd and Holy Three,
Glorious Trinity,
Praise to Thy Name:
Father, Thy love we bless;
Spirit of holiness,
We praise Thee and confess,
"Worthy the Lamb."

Amen.
