1
LORD Jesus Christ, our living Head,
How bright Thy glories shine!
Unique in Thy humanity:
Eternally divine.
2
Thou wast before created things,
Of all the Author Thou;
Upholder of the universe,
To Thee as God we bow.
3
The creature mind, howe'er sublime,
Thine Essence cannot know,
Yet we, to Thee in majesty,
With reverence bend low.
4
But in Thy manhood's glorious state
Our thankful hearts rejoice;
For of Thy body, Lord, are we,
Of love divine the choice.
5
Great source of wisdom, power and food,
All riches from Thee flow;
Thou on Thy church, Thy fulness here,
All treasure dost bestow.
6
So unto Thee, our glorious Head,
Our tribute now we bring;
In nearness, by the Spirit's power,
In heav'nly measures sing.

C.C. Elliot
