Christ My Song - 1079
High at God's right hand is seated - "We see Jesus"
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"We see Jesus."
1. High at God's right hand is seated
Christ the Lord, the Living One!
All his toil on earth completed,
all his work for sinners done;
in the glory
see him – God's eternal Son!
2. Every knee shall bow before him,
every tongue confess his name:
ransomed myriads adore him
who endured the sinner's shame!
From the glory
God doth now his worth proclaim!
3. Man the cross to him awarded,
man the Saviour crucified!
Thus man's judgment stands recorded,
thus was justice satisfied!
By the glory
Christ was claimed, on earth who died!
4. Son of Man! his incarnation
opened first the tale of grace;
Son of Man! in new creation
Leader of a chosen race!
Well may glory
crown him, in the ordered place!
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 155-156.
