1 Risen Lord in splendor seated,
throned at God the Father's side,
Prince of life who death defeated,
Lamb who once for sinners died;
Christ forever, Son and Savior,
reigns in triumph glorified.
2 He, who came our nature bearing,
Child of earth from heaven's throne,
human trials and troubles sharing,
God Himself in flesh made known;
Christ forever with His people,
send His Spirit on His own.
3 Love of God, unwearied, reachng
furthest bounds of time and space,
still by foolishness of preaching,
holding forth the word of grace;
Christ forever interceding,
builds His church in every place.
4 Earth awaits her new creation
when from sin and death restored,
in the strength of full salvation,
Christ is honored and adored;
Christ forever high ascended,
sovereign universal Lord!
