1 THE Lord unto my Lord hath said,
"Sit thou, in glory sit,
Till I thine enemies have made
To bow beneath thy feet."
2 Jesu, my Lord, mighty to save,
What can my hopes withstand,
While thee my Advocate I have,
Enthroned at God's right hand?
3 Nature is subject to thy word,
All power to thee is given,
The uncontrolled, almighty Lord
Of hell, and earth, and heaven.
4 And shall my sins thy will oppose?
Master, thy right maintain!
O let not thy usurping foes
In me thy servant reign!
5 Come then, and claim me for thine own,
Saviour, thy right assert!
Come, gracious Lord, set up thy throne,
And reign within my heart!
6 So shall I bless thy pleasing sway;
And sitting at thy feet,
Thy laws with all my heart obey,
With all my soul submit.
7 So shall I do thy will below,
As angels do above;
The virtue of thy passion show,
The triumphs of thy love
8 Thy love the conquest more than gains;
To all I shall proclaim,
Jesus the King, the conqueror, reigns,
Bow down to Jesu's name!
9 To thee shall earth and hell submit,
And every foe shall fall,
Till death expires beneath thy feet,
And God is all in all.
