537. Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor

1 Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendor,
first begotten from the dead,
thou alone, our strong defender,
liftest up thy people’s head.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Jesus, true and living Bread!

2 Here our humblest homage pay we,
here in loving rev'rence bow;
here for faith’s discernment pray we,
lest we fail to know thee now.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou art here, we ask not how.

3 Paschal Lamb, thine off'ring, finished
once for all when thou wast slain,
in its fullness undiminished
shall forevermore remain,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
cleansing us from every stain.

4 Life imparting heav'nly Manna,
smitten Rock with streaming side,
heav'n and earth with loud hosanna
worship thee, the Lamb who died.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ris'n, ascended, glorified!
