King of kings, and Lord of lords!
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

King of kings, and Lord of lords!

"King of kings, and Lord of lords." (Revelation 19,16)

1. "King of kings, and Lord of lords!"
  These are great and awful words;
'tis to Jesus they belong:
  let his people raise their song.

2. Hark, how angels sound his praise!
  filled with transport while they gaze:
glory, honour, praise and power,
  these are thine for evermore.

3. Crown him, then, whom angels sing;
  crown him everlasting king!
Jesus fills the throne above,
  Jesus is the God of love.

4. Holy, holy, holy Lord!
  Heav'n and earth thy name record;
pow'r and praise to thee belong;
  Lord, accept our feeble song.

5. Rich in glory, thou didst stoop:
  this is now thy people's hope:
thou wast poor, that they might be
  rich in glory, Lord, with thee.

6. When we think of love like this,
  joy and shame our hearts possess:
joy, that thou couldst pity thus;
  shame, for such returns from us.

7. Yet we hope the day to see,
  when we shall from earth be free;
borne aloft, to heav'n be brought,
  there to praise thee as we ought.

8. While we still continue here,
  let this hope our spirits cheer.
Till in heav'n thy face we see,
  teach us, Lord, to live to thee.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 43.
