Rise, glorious Conqueror, rise

Representative Text

1 Rise, glorious Conqueror, rise
Into Thy native skies;
Assume Thy right;
And where in many a fold
The clouds are backward rolled
Pass through those gates of gold,
And reign in light!

2 Victor o’er death and hell,
Cherubic legions swell
Thy radiant train.
Praises all heaven inspire;
Each angel sweeps his lyre,
And claps his wings of fire,
Thou Lamb once slain!

3 Enter, incarnate God!
No feet but Thine have trod
The serpent down.
Blow the full trumpets, blow,
Wider yon portals throw,
Savior, triumphant go
And take Thy crown!

4. Lion of Judah, hail!
And let Thy name prevail
From age to age.
Lord of the rolling years,
Claim for Thine own the spheres
For Thou hast bought with tears
Thy heritage!

Amen.
