Words by George Hugh Bourne (1840-1925), a priest of The Church of England


1.  Lord, enthroned in heav’nly splendor,

First begotten from the dead,

You alone, our strong defender,

Lifting up your people’s head.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Jesus, true and living bread!

Jesus, true and living bread!

2.  Though the lowliest form now veil you

As of old in Bethlehem,

Here as there your angels hail you,

Branch and flow’r of Jesse’s stem.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

We in worship join with them;

We in worship join with them.

3.  Paschal Lamb, your off’ring finished

Once for all when you were slain,

In its fullness undiminished

Shall forevermore remain.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain;

Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain.

4.  Life imparting heav’nly manna,

Stricken rock with streaming side,

Heav’n and earth with loud hosanna

Worship you, the Lamb who died,

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Ris’n, ascended, glorified!

Risn’n, ascended, glorifed!
