HIS INTERCESSION AND REIGN
2  He left His starry crown,
And laid His robes aside; On wings of love came down, And wept, and bled, and died: What He endured, O who can tell, To save our souls from death and hell.
3  From the dark grave He rose,
The mansion of the dead, And thence His mighty foes
In glorious triumph led; Up through the sky the Conqueror rode, And reigns on high, the Saviour, God. 4 Jesus, we ne'er can pay
The debt we owe Thy love; Yet tell us how we may
Our gratitude approve: Our hearts, our all, to Thee we give; The gift, though small, do Thou receive!
Rev. Samuel Stennett, 1787

■  2 Thou art gone where now is given
What no mortal might could gain; On the eternal throne of heaven, In Thy Father's power to reign.
■  3 There Thy kingdoms all adore Thee,
Heaven above and earth below; While the depths of hell before Thee, Trembling and defeated, bow. 4 We, O Lord, with hearts adoring, Follow Thee above the sky:
Hear our prayers, Thy grace imploring, Lift our souls to Thee on high!
5  So, when Thou again in glory
On the clouds of heaven shalt shine, We, Thy flock, may stand before Thee, Owned for evermore as Thine.
6  Hail! all hail! in Thee confiding,
Jesus, Thee shall all adore; In Thy Father's might abiding, With one Spirit evermore! Latin, 7th century. Tr- by Bishop J. E. WooFORd, i863
