1 Jesus our triumphant head,
Risen victorious from the dead;
To the realms of glory's gone
To ascend his rightful throne.
2 Cherubs on the conquerer gaze:
Seraphs glow with brighter blaze;
Each bright order of the sky,
Hail him as he passes by!
3 Saints the glorious triumph meet;
See their garments at his feet!
By his fears his toils, are viewed,
And his garments rolled in blood!
4 Heaven it king congratulates;
Opens wide their golden gates;
Angels, songs of victory sing,
All the blissful regions ring!
5 Sinners join the heavenly pow'rs,
For redemption all is ours;
None but burdened sinners prove,
Blood bought pardon, dying love.
6 Hail! thou dear, thou worthy Lord!
Holy Lamb! incarnate word!
Hail! thou suffering Son of God!
Take the trophies of thy blood.
