Verse 1: O God of God! O Light of Light! Thou Prince of Peace, Thou King of kings, To Thee where angels know no night, The song of praise forever rings: To Him who sits upon the throne, The Lamb once slain for sinful men, Be honor, might; all by Him won; Glory and praise! Amen, Amen!
Verse 2: Deep in the prophet’s sa-cred page, Grand in the Spiritgiven word, Slowly in type, from age to age, Nations beheld their coming Lord; Till thro’ the deep Judean night Rang out the song, “Good will to men! “Hymned by the firstborn sons of light, Reechoed now, “Good will!” Amen!
Verse 4: Sing to the Lord a glorious song, Sing to His name, His love forth tell; Sing, heaven’s hosts, His praise prolong; Sing, ye who now on earth do dwell; O worthy Lamb for sinners slain, From angels, praise; and thanks from men; O worthy Lamb, enthroned to reign, Glory and pow’r! Amen, Amen!
Verse 3: That life of truth, those deeds of love, That death of pain, ‘mid hate and scorn; These all are past, and now above, He reigns our King! once crowned with thorns. “Lift up your heads, ye heav’nly gates;” So sang His hosts, unheard by men; “Lift up your heads, for you He waits.” “We lift them up! Amen, Amen!”
Coda: Glory and pow’r! Amen, Amen!
