1 The Lord of life, with glory crowned,
On heav'n's exalted throne,
Forgets not those, for whom on earth
He heav'd His dying groan.

2 His greatness now no tongue of man
Or seraph bright can tell;
Yet still the chief of all His joys,
That souls are saved from hell.

3 For this He taught, and toiled, and bled;
For this His life was given;
For this He fought, and vanquished death;
For this He reigns in heav'n.

4 Join, all ye saints beneath the sky,
Your grateful praise to give;
Sing loud hosannas to His Name,
With whom you too shall live.
