O THOU ETERNAL KING MOST HIGH


1 O Thou eternal King most high,
Who didst the world redeem,
And conqu'ring death and hell, receive
A dignity supreme,
Thou to Thy heav'nly throne this day
Didst in Thy might ascend,
Thenceforth to reign in sov'reign power,
And glory without end.
2 There seated in Thy majesty
To Thee submissive bow
The spacious earth, the highest heav'n.
The depths of hell below;
Thee, waiting for Thy faithful souls,
Be Thou to us, O Lord,
Our peerless joy while here we stay,
In heav'n our great reward.
