1 Your majesty, how vast it is,
and how immense the glory,
which you, O Jesus, do possess;
the heav'ns proclaim your story;
the legions of angels exalt your great name,
your glory and might are transcendent;
and thousands of thousands your praises proclaim,
upon you gladly dependent.

2 The Father’s equal, God the Son,
with him is ever reigning;
you are partaker of his throne,
and all things are sustaining;
both heaven and earth view their Maker as man,
with joy that is past all expression;
O happy, unspeakably happy, who can
in Jesus find life and salvation.

3 The Church on earth, in humble strain,
exalts the Christ, our Savior,
and sings, “The Lamb for us was slain,
our foe is lost forever;
for Christ hath redeemed us with his precious blood
out of every nation and kindred,
and make us thereby kings and priests unto God.
To him thanksgiving be rendered.”
