Hymn/Song Information

How can it be thou heavenly King That




How can it be, thou heavenly King,
That thou shouldst us to glory bring?
Make slaves the partners of thy throne,
Decked with a never-fading crown!


Hence our hearts melt, our eyes o'erflow,
Our words are lost; nor will we know,
Nor will we think of aught beside,
"My Lord, my Love is crucified."


Ah! Lord, enlarge our scanty thought,
To know the wonders thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stammering tongues to tell
Thy love immense, unsearchable!


First-born of many brethren thou,
To thee, lo! all our souls we bow;
To thee our hearts and hands we give ;
Thine may we die, thine may we live!
