Great Captain of salvation,
 
Now crowned with highest glory,
 
Joyful we raise,
 
Our songs of praise,
 
And lowly bow before Thee:
 
We worship and adore Thee,
 
Each heart and tongue confessing,
 
Worthy to reign,
 
The Lamb once slain,
 
Of honor, power and blessing.
Hebrews 2:10; Hebrew 2:7,9; Revelation 5:6; Revelation 5:12

Thou hast the cross endurèd—
 
In love beyond all measure!
 
The curse, the grave,
 
Thy saints to save,
 
And have us as Thy treasure.
 
We see Thee as the Victim,
 
Our sins and sorrows bearing;
 
The Lamb once slain,
 
Alive again,
 
The crown of glory wearing.
Hebrews 12:2; Ephesians 3:19; Galatians 3:13; Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 13:44; Isaiah 53:4; Revelation 5:6; Revelation 1:18; Hebrews 2:7,9

Head of the new creation,
 
To God's right hand ascended;
 
Thy saints rejoice,
 
With heart and voice,
 
Before Thy feet low bended:
 
We own Thee, Lord, exulting
 
In all Thy joy and glory:
 
And long to be
 
On high with Thee,
 
Where all shall bow before Thee.
Ephesians 1:20-22; Romans 14:11
