185. On His Father's Throne Is Seated

8.7.
by Miss H.K. Burlingham
1
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!
2
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.
3
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.
4
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!
