1We hail Thee, King of kings, Eternal Christ!
From realms of help Thou gavest gifts to men,
Apostle, Prophet, Saint, Evangelist,
Thy Spirit lives for us in theirs again:
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing!
2We bless, we glorify Thy Name, O Lord,
For all the benedictions of Thy grace,
For thoughts now darkly mirrored in Thy Word,
Full surety of the vision face to face:
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing!
3For all Thy heroes living, martyrs dead,
For all the brave, the steadfast, and the true,
Who of the paltry world’s blame had no dread,
And what they dared to dream of, dared to do:
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing!
4For those who bravely used their tongue or pen,
The doughty champions of the weaker part,
Who smoothed the way of life for wandering men,
And, speaking truth, stabbed falsehood to the heart
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing!
5For all our birthright with the sons of God,
Who strive to lift the manhood of the poor,
Who for the weary, hard beset, downtrod,
Still keep an open soul and open door:
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing!
6And last, for those, our dearest and our best,
Who watch with studious eyes our vassal state,
And wait in God’s wide chambers of the blest,
Our royal call to that high palace gate:
We praise, we magnify Thee, Christ our King,
And evermore Thy sovereign glory sing! Amen.
