Christ My Song - 1340
See where the Lord his glory spreads
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
See where the Lord his glory spreads.
"Who coverest thyself with light." (Psalm 104,2)
2. Around his everlasting throne
ten thousand times ten thousand sing:
they worship him as God alone,
and crown him everlasting King.
3. Approach, ye saints, this God is yours;
'tis Jesus fills the throne above;
ye cannot fail while God endures;
ye cannot want while God is love.
4. Come then, and swell the note of praise,
in Jesu's name rejoice and sing:
while angels on his glory gaze,
the saints may cry, "Behold our King."
5. Jesus, thou everlasting King,
to thee the praise of heav'n belongs;
yet smile on us, who fain would bring
the tribute of our humbler songs.
6. Though sin defile our worship here,
we hope, ere long, thy face to view;
in heav'n with angels to appear,
and praise thy name as angels do.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 46.
