7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
WE praise Thee, Lord of glory,
Established Heir of all;
Creation's wondrous story
Thy greatness doth recall.
God's glory in effulgence
In Thee the Son is seen;
Expression of His substance,
We hail Thee now supreme!
2
No mind of man conceived it,
The Name in manhood Thine:
A Name Thou dost inherit
In ways of love divine.
More excellent than angel,
Thou art the Son, O Lord.
We hail Thee, O Emmanuel!
The blest incarnate Word.
3
Thy throne, O God, for ever,
Thy sceptre uprightness,
The earth, O blest Creator,
And heavens Thy power express.
In time they all shall perish,
But Thou continuest still;
Thy fame no years diminish,
Thou who dost all things fill!

S. McCallum
