Hymn using same tune: #808


Lord of glory, we adore Thee!

Christ of God, ascended high!

Heart and soul we bow before Thee,

Glorious now beyond the sky:

Thee we worship, Thee we praise —

Excellent in all Thy ways.


Anointed King, with glory crownèd,

Rightful Heir and Lord of all!

Once rejected, scorned, disownèd,

E'en by those Thou cam'st to call:

Thee we honor, Thee adore —

Glorious now and evermore.


Lord of life! To death once subject;

Blesser, yet a curse once made;

Of Thy Father's heart the object,

Yet in depths of anguish laid;

Thee we gaze on, Thee recall —

Bearing here our sorrows all.


Royal robes shall soon invest Thee,

Royal splendors crown Thy brow;

Christ of God, our souls confess Thee

King and Sov'reign even now!

Thee we rev'rence, Thee obey —

Own Thee Lord and Christ alway.
