All Praise to Thee, for Thou, O King Divine

Representative Text

1 All praise be yours, for you, O King divine,
Your rightful glory freely did resign
That in our darkened hearts your grace might shine. Alleluia!

2 You came to us in lowliness of thought;
By you the outcast and the poor were sought,
And by your death was God's salvation wrought. Alleluia!

3 O Jesus, let your mind within us be,
For you were servant that we might be free
And humbly stooped to death on Calvary. Alleluia!

4 Therefore you are, by God's eternal vow,
Most high exalted o'er all creatures now
And giv'n the name to which all knees shall bow. Alleluia!

5 Let ev'ry tongue confess with one accord
In heav'n and earth that Jesus Christ is Lord,
And God the Father be by all adored. Alleluia!
