While Christ was mocked by some, this text speaks of our understanding now that Christ’s reign is real (stanza 1), his crown is glorious (stanza 1), and his kingdom “will not cease to grow” (stanza 3). This firm hope is expressed in Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 12, Question and Answer 31: Christ has been anointed to be the “eternal king who governs by his word and Spirit, and who guards us and keeps us in the freedom he has won for us.”
