THE PRINCE OF LIFE




Hail to the Prince of life and peace,
Who holds the keys of death and hell!
The spacious world unseen is His,
And sovereign power becomes Him well.


In shame and torment once He died,
But now He lives forevermore;
Bow down, ye saints, around His seat,
And all ye angel bands, adore.


So live forever, glorious Lord,
To crush Thy foes and guard Thy friends!
While all Thy chosen tribes rejoice
That Thy dominion never ends.


So live for ever glorious Lord,
Convert thy foes, and guard thy friends;
Thy reign our triumph doth afford,
Thy glorious kingdom never ends.


Worthy Thy hands to hold the keys,
Guided by wisdom and by love;
Worthy to rule oer mortal life,
Oer worlds below and worlds above.


When death thy servants shall invade,
When powers of hell thy church annoy,
Controlled by thee, their rage shall aid
The cause they labor to destroy.


Forever reign, victorious King!
Wide through the earth Thy Name is known;
And call my longing soul to sing
Sublimer anthems near Thy throne.


---Alternative verses---


In shame and torment once He died,
But now He lives forevermore;
Exalted at his Fsther's side:
Angels and saints your King adore.


For ever reign, thou Prince of Peace,
Wide through the earth thy name be known;
In heaven thy praises never cease,
May earth redeemed its Saviour own.


Live, live for ever, glorious Lord,
To crush thy foes and guard thy friends;
While all thy chosen tribes rejoice
That thy dominion never ends.


Worthy thy hand to hold the keys,
Guided by wisdom and by love;
Worthy to rule our mortal lives,
O'er worlds below and worlds above.


For ever reign, victorious King!
Wide through the earth thy name be known;
And call our longing souls to sing
Sublimer anthems near thy throne.
