Risen Lord in splendour seated
Risen Lord in splendour seated,
throned at God the Father’s side,
Prince of life who death defeated,
Lamb who once for sinners died,
Christ for ever Son and Saviour
reigns in triumph glorified.
2. He who came our nature bearing,
child of earth from heaven’s throne,
human trials and troubles sharing,
God himself in flesh made known,
Christ for ever with his people
sends his Spirit on his own.
3. Love of God, unwearied, reaching
furthest bounds of time and space,
still by foolishness of preaching
holding forth the word of grace,
Christ for ever interceding
builds his church in every place.
4. Earth awaits her new creation
when from sin and death restored,
in the strength of full salvation
Christ is honoured and adored,
Christ for ever high ascended,
sovereign, universal Lord!
