Jesus our Lord is King (Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jesus our Lord is King.

"Now unto the King eternal ... be honour and glory."
(1 Timothy 1,17)

1. Jesus our Lord is King,
come then, ye saints, and sing,
    Jesus our theme:
high over all he is,
yonder bright throne is his;
triumph, ye saints, in this,
    triumph in him. PDF - Midi

2. Angels confess his claim,
angels exalt his name,
    "Angels of light";
spirits around his throne,
blessed in him alone,
making his glory known,
    day without night.

3. High on his throne above,
his is a throne of love,
    Jesus is seen:
in yonder glorious place,
angels adore his grace,
angels behold his face,
    no cloud between.

4. While we remain below,
"only in part we know";
    more is not giv'n:
but there's a day at hand,
when, at our Lord's command,
we hope with joy to stand
    near him in heav'n.

5. Then in triumphant songs,
(such joy to heav'n belongs,)
    all shall unite;
all shall unite to sing
Jesus our glorious King,
then shall all heaven ring,
    ring with delight.

6. While ages roll away,
joy suffers no decay,
    ever the same:
let us then praise our King,
tribute and homage bring;
Lord, 'tis thy name we sing,
    Jesus! thy name.
