Thy Majesty How Vast It Is


Your majesty, how vast it is,
and how immense the glory,
which you, O Jesus, do possess;
the heav’ns proclaim your story;
the legions of angels exalt your great name,
your glory and might are transcendent;
and thousands of thousands your praises proclaim,
upon you gladly dependent.

The Father’s equal, God the Son,
with him is ever reigning;
you are partaker of his throne,
and all things are sustaining;
both heaven and earth view their Maker as man,
with joy that is past all expression;
O happy, unspeakably happy, who can
in Jesus find life and salvation.

The Church on earth, in humble strain,
exalts the Christ, our Savior,
and sings, “The Lamb for us was slain,
our foe is lost forever;
for Christ hath redeemed us with his precious blood
out of every nation and kindred,
and make us thereby kings and priests unto God.
To him thanksgiving be rendered.”
