1 Hail, God the Son, in Glory crown'd,
E'er time began to be,
Throned with thy Sire, thro' half the Round
Of w9de eEternity!
2 Let Heaven, and Earth’s stupendous Frame
Display their Author’s Power;
And each exalted Seraph Flame
Creator, thee adore!
3 Thy wondrous Love the God-head shew'd
Contracted to a Span,
The Co-eternal Son of God,
The mortal Son of Man.
4 To save Mankind from lost Estate,
Behold His Life Blood Stream!
Hail, Lord Almighty to create!
Almighty to redeem!
5 The Mediator’s Godlike sway
His Church below sustains;
Till Nature shall her Judge survey,
The King Messiah reigns.
6 Hail with essential Glory crown'd
When time shall cease to be;
Thron'd with the Father thro' the Round
Of whole Eternity!

Hail, God the Son, in glory crowned. S. Wesley, jun. [Adoration of God the Son.] This companion hymn to the foregoing by the same author, was first published in his Poems, &c, 1736, and repeated in J. Wesley's Psalms & Hymns, Charlestown, South Carolina, 1736-7, No. 12, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "Hymn to God the Son." It was repeated in the 2nd edition of the author's Poems, &c, 1743, and in Nicholls's reprint, 1862. In 1830 it was included in the Supplement to the Wesleyan Hymn Book, No. 601; and in the revised edition 1875, No 665. It is also in other collections in Great Britain and America. Although not recognized in the Wesleyan Hymn Book until 1830, it was brought into use in the Church of England by Toplady in his Psalms & Hymns in 1776, No. 190.
