US hymn 221 O Lord Most High (tune AMNS 388)

 

O Lord Most High, eternal King,

By thee redeemed thy praise we sing.

The bonds of death are burst by thee,

And grace has won the victory.

 

Ascending to the Father’s throne

Thou claim’st the kingdom as thine own;

And angels wonder when they see

How changed is our humanity.

 

Be thou our joy, O mighty Lord,

As thou wilt be our great reward;

Let all our glory be in thee

Both now and through eternity.

 

O risen Christ, ascended Lord,

All praise to thee let earth accord,

Who art, while endless ages run,

With Father and with Spirit, One. Alleluia!
