1 O Christ, what matchless beauty crowns Thy brow!
And what majestic splendor is Thine own!
Once lowly man, tho’ God and man, but now,
Exalted Lord and King of heaven’s throne.
To Thee, O Christ, be glory evermore,
And may each heart enthrone Thee as its King!
Let men and angels bow and Thee adore,
And thro’ Eternity Thy praises sing.
2 O Christ, how marvelous Thy grace to man!
And how compassionate Thy heart of love
That wrought so willingly salvation’s plan,
And brought Thee from Thy mansions above. [Refrain]
3 O Christ, Thou stoodest at the judgment bar,
And wast condemned to death upon the tree;
But now, of all the nations near and far,
The dead, the living, Thou the Judge shall be. [Refrain]
