Hymn/Song Information

O King of kings O Lord of hosts




O King of kings, O Lord of hosts,
Whose throne is lifted high
Above the nations of the earth,
the armies of the sky,
The spirits of perfected saints
[The spirits of the perfected]
may give their nobler songs
And we, Thy children, worship Thee,
to Whom all praise belongs.


Thou who didst lead Thy people forth,
and make the captive free,
Hast drawn around our native land
The curtain of the sea,
To make another holy place,
where golden lamps should shine,
And human hearts keep loving
watch around the ark divine.


Thy hand has hid within our fields
treasures of countless worth;
The light, the suns of other years,
shine from the depths of earth;
The very dust, inbreathed by Thee,
the clods all cold and dead,
Wake into beauty and to life,
to give Thy children bread.


Thou Who hast sown
the sky with stars,
and set Thy thoughts in gold,
Hast crowned our
nation’s life, and ours,
with blessings manifold;
Thy mercies have been numberless;
Thy love, Thy grace, Thy care,
Were wider than our utmost need,
and higher than our prayer.


O King of kings, O Lord of hosts,
our fathers’ God and ours!
Be with us in the future years;
and if the tempest lowers,
Look through the cloud
with light of love,
and smile our tears away
And lead us through
the brightening years
to heaven’s eternal day.
