Thou Art The Everlasting Son


Thou art the everlasting Son,
O Christ! and, high upon thy throne,
Thou art at the right hand of God,
And hast redeemed us by thy blood;
And heaven and earth are full of thee–
The glory of thy Majesty!

When all the sharpness of our death
Was overcome in thy last breath,
Then didst thou open wide heaven’s door
To all believers evermore:
O Lamb of God! and thou wilt come,
To be our Judge, and take us home.

In thee we trust: we pray thee, Lord,
Remember thy most precious blood!
In honor may we numbered be
With all the noble company
Who bow before thy mercy-seat,
And cast their treasures at thy feet.
