Jesus, royal Jesus

Representative Text

1 Jesus! Royal Jesus!
Son of God most high,
Saviour meek and lowly,
Riding forth to die!
On a colt Thou sittest,
While the people sing,
"Glory in the Highest,
Blessed by the King!"

2 Tell we forth Thy praises,
Palms in triumph wave;
Blessing, with hosannas,
Whome we hail to save.
We with hearts and voices
Honour Thee with them
Who Thy footsteps welcomed
To Jerusalem.

3 Soon will these, O Jesus!
Raise the Cross on high,
And the crowd, so faithless,
Shout "Him crucify."
Dearest Lord, increase us
With Thy perfect love,
That through all temptations,
We may faithful prove.

4 Grant us Thee to follow,
And Thy Cross to bear,
So Thy Resurrection
We at last may share;
So that we may praise Thee
On Thy Heavenly Throne,
Who art, with the Father,
And the Spirit, One!
