The Lord Unto My Lord Hath Said

The Lord unto my Lord hath said,
“Sit thou, in glory sit,

The Lord unto my Lord hath said,
“Sit thou, in glory sit,
Till I thine enemies have made
To bow beneath thy feet.”

Jesu, my Lord, mighty to save,
What can my hopes withstand,
While thee my Advocate I have,
Enthroned at God’s right hand?

Nature is subject to thy word,
All power to thee is given,
The uncontrolled, almighty Lord
Of hell, and earth, and heaven.

And shall my sins thy will oppose?
Master, thy right maintain!
O let not thy usurping foes
In me thy servant reign!

Come then, and claim me for thine own,
Saviour, thy right assert!
Come, gracious Lord, set up thy throne,
And reign within my heart!

So shall I bless thy pleasing sway;
And sitting at thy feet,
Thy laws with all my heart obey,
With all my soul submit.

So shall I do thy will below,
As angels do above;
The virtue of thy passion show,
The triumphs of thy love

Thy love the conquest more than gains;
To all I shall proclaim,
Jesus the King, the conqueror, reigns,
Bow down to Jesu’s name!

To thee shall earth and hell submit,
And every foe shall fall,
Till death expires beneath thy feet,
And God is all in all.

Psalm cx.1.
