Lo! the infant Saviour lies
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Lo! the infant Saviour lies.

"God our Saviour." (Titus 3,4)

1. Lo! the infant Saviour lies;
  angels call him "only wise";
to his name they join the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

2. See! he stands at Pilate's bar;
  most despised of all by far;
still to him belong the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

3. He who wears the crown of thorns,
  he whom man reviles and scorns,
claims exclusively the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

4. On the cross 'tis still the same;
  never does he yield his claim:
clear his title to the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

5. Past the conflict of his love;
  see! he takes his place above:
on his vesture shine the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

6. O ye bright seraphic choirs,
  strike anew your golden lyres:
while ye gaze, proclaim the words –
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

7. Join, ye saints, with heav'n agree,
  let the name of Jesus he
still united to the words,
  "King of kings, and Lord of lords."

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 47.
