6.5., 12 lines

Sion:

Henry Smart, 1872

W. Hope Davison, 1887

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear thy children cry.

479

Pardon our transgressions,

Cleanse us from our sin;

By thy Spirit help us

Heavenly life to win.

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear thy children cry.

On this day of gladness,

Bending low the knee

In thine earthly temple,

Lord, we worship thee;

Celebrate thy goodness,

Mercy, grace, and truth,

All thy loving guidance

Of our heedless youth.

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear our grateful cry.

For the little children

Who have come to thee;

For the glad, bright spirits

Who thy glory see;

For the loved ones resting

In thy dear embrace;

For the pure and holy

Who behold thy face,

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear our grateful cry.

For thy faithful servants

Who have entered in;

For thy fearless soldiers

Who have conquered sin;

480

For the countless legions

Who have followed thee,

Heedless of the danger,

On to victory,

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear our grateful cry.

When the shadows lengthen,

Show us, Lord, thy way;

Through the darkness lead us

To the heavenly day.

When our course is finished,

Ended all the strife,

Grant us with the faithful

Palms and crowns of life.

Jesus, King of glory,

Throned above the sky,

Jesus, tender Savior,

Hear thy children cry.

Amen.
