Thou Eternal King Most High

O Thou eternal King most high!
Who didst the world redeem;
And conqu’ring death and hell, receive
A dignity supreme.

O Thou thro’ starry orbs, this day
Didst to Thy throne ascend;
Thenceforth to reign in sov’reign pow’r
And glory without end.

Glory to Jesus, who returns
Triumphantly to heav’n:
And praise to the Father evermore,
And Holy Ghost be giv’n.

L. J. Kavanagh and James M. McLaughlin, Crown Hymnal (Boston: Ginn and Company, 1912).
