185. On His Father's Throne Is Seated

by Miss H.K. Burlingham
On His Father's throne is seated
Christ the Lord, the living One!
All His toil on earth completed,
All His work for sinners done.
In the glory, in the glory
See Him—God's eternal Son!
Every knee shall bow before Him,
Every tongue confess His name,
Ransomed myriads shall adore Him,
Who endured the sinner's shame!
From the glory, from the glory
God doth now His worth proclaim.
Man the cross to Him awarded;
Man the Saviour crucified!
Thus man's judgment stands recorded,
Thus was justice satisfied!
By the glory, by the glory
Christ was claimed, on earth who died.
Son of Man, His incarnation
Opened first the tale of grace;
Son of Man, in new creation
Leader of a chosen race!
Well may glory, well may glory
Crown Him in the ordered place!
