2 Crown Him the Lord of love:
Behold His hands and side,
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified:
No angel in the sky

Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye
At mysteries so bright.

3 Crown Him the Lord of peace;
Whose power a sceptre sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
Absorbed in prayer and praise:

Ineffably sublime:

All hail, Redeemer, hail!

For Thou hast died for me:
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity.

3 Thou didst create the stars of night;
Yet Thou hast veiled in flesh Thy light,
Hast deigned a mortal form to wear,
A mortal's painful lot to bear.

1 'Tis for conquering kings to gain.
Glory o'er their myriads slain;
Jesus, Thy more glorious strife
Hath restored a world to life.

4 We, O Lord, with hearts adoring,
Follow Thee beyond the sky:
Hear our prayers Thy grace imploring,
Lift our souls to Thee on high;

2 So no other Name is given
Unto mortals under heaven
Which can make the dead to rise,
And exalt them to the skies.

6 Hail! all hail!

In Thee confiding,

Jesus, Thee shall all adore,
In Thy Father's might abiding
With one Spirit evermore.

Anon. (Latin, 6th or 7th cent.). Trans. by Bishop James R. Woodford, 1852

On the clouds of heaven shalt shine. We Thy flock may stand before Thee, Owned for evermore as Thine.

3 That which Christ so hardly wrought,
That which He so dearly bought,
That salvation, mortals, say,
Will you madly cast away?

4 Rather gladly for that Name
Bear the cross, endure the shame;
Joyfully for Him to die
Is not death, but victory.

5 Dost Thou, Jesus, condescend
To be called the sinner's Friend?
Ours, then, it shall always be
Thus to make our boast of Thee.

Anon. in Paris Breviary, 1736. Trans. by Rev. John Chandler, 1837
