1 Thou art the everlasting Son,
O Christ! and, high upon thy throne,
Thou art at the right hand of God,
And hast redeemed us by thy blood;
And heaven and earth are full of thee--
The glory of thy Majesty!
2 When all the sharpness of our death
Was overcome in thy last breath,
Then didst thou open wide heaven's door
To all believers evermore:
O Lamb of God! and thou wilt come,
To be our Judge, and take us home.
3 In thee we trust: we pray thee, Lord,
Remember thy most precious blood!
In honor may we numbered be
With all the noble company
Who bow before thy mercy-seat,
And cast their treasures at thy feet.
