Hymn/Song Information

The Lord descended from above And bowed the




The Lord descended from above,
And bowed the heavens high;
And underneath His feet He cast
The darkness of the sky.


(On cherubs and on cherubims)
Full royally He rode;
And on the wings of all the winds
Came flying all abroad.


And from above the Lord sent down
To fetch me from below,
And plucked me out of waters great
That would me overflow.


(And me delivered from my foes)
That would have made me thrall;
Yea, from such foes as were too strong
For me to deal withal.


And as I was an innocent,
So did He me regard,
And to the cleanness of my hands
He gave me my reward.


For that I walked in His ways,
And in His paths have trod,
And have not wavered wickedly
Against my Lord and God.


He sat serene upon the floods,
Their fury to restrain;
And he, as sovereign Lord and King,
Forevermore shall reign.


The Lord will give his people strength,
Whereby they shall increase;
And he will bless his chosen flock,
With everlasting peace.


Give glory to his awful name,
And honour him alone;
Give worship to his majesty
Upon his holy throne.


---Alternative verses---


The Lord descended from above,
And bowed the heavens most high;
And underneath His feet He cast
The darkness of the sky.


On cherubim and on seraphim
Full royally He rode;
And on the wings of all the winds
Came flying all abroad.
