188. Jesus in His Heavenly Glory

1 Jesus in His heav'nly glory,
sits with God upon the throne;
now no more to be forsaken,
His humiliation gone.

2 Never more shall God, Jehovah,
smite the Shepherd with the sword;
ne'er again shall cruel sinners
set at nought our glorious Lord.

3 Dwelling in eternal sunshine
of the countenance of God,
Jesus fills all heaven with incense
of His reconciling blood.

4 On His heart our names are graven,
on His shoulders we are borne;
of our God beloved in Jesus,
we can love Him in return.
