Great King of Saints enthroned on high




Great King of Saints, enthroned on high,
Under thy care thy churches live;
Thou dost their various wants supply,
And well appointed pastors give.


For pastors may thy name be blest,
Who teach the doctrines of the Lord;
On deacons may thy favor rest,
Chosen according to thy word.


While these their work assigned fulfil,
Oh, may their souls with grace be crowned;
And patience, sympathy, and zeal
With meekness in their lives abound.


Sound in the faith, in conscience clear,
Ever may they themselves approve,
Sober and just, devout, sincere,
Guided by wisdom from above.


And when their service here is done,
Their labours and their conflicts o’er,
Then may they stand before thy throne,
In heaven to praise thee evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Great King of Saints, enthroned on high,
Under thy care thy churches live;
Thou dost their various wants supply,
And well appointed elders give.
