Hymn/Song Information

O King of kings before whose throne




O King of kings, before whose throne
The angels bow, no gift we can
Present that is indeed our own,
Since Heaven and earth belong to Thee;
Yet this our souls through grace impart,
The offering of a thankful heart.


O Jesu, set at Godís right hand,
With Thine eternal Father plead
For all Thy loyal-hearted band,
Who still on earth Thy succor need:
For them in weakness strength provide,
And through the world their footsteps guide.


O Holy Spirit, fount of breath,
Whose comforts never fail nor fade,
Vouchsafe the life that knows no death,
Vouchsafe the light that knows no shade;
And grant that we may through all our days
May share Thy gifts, and sing Thy praise.
