1 When Jesus' time was fully come
To leave this world below;
Then he return'd to heav'n, his home!
Where he is worship'd now.
2 His work on earth is all complete:
His suff'rings have an end;
In heav'n he took his place and seat,
And reigns at God's right hand.
3 The Hosts of heaven praise his name,
And of his wonders sing;
Then let us join to do the same
And worship him our King.
4 To him, are endless praises due.
From all that live and move;
Yet men or angels cannot shew
The greatness of his love.
5 We shall more fully sing his praise:
When we get near his throne--
And love and thank him all our days,
For all that he has done.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXXXVII
