39: ON His Father's throne is seatedby Miss Hannah Kilham Burlingham (1842-1901)
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
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
God doth now His worth proclaim.
3 Man the cross to Him awarded;
Man the Saviour crucified;
This world's judgment stands recorded,
God's own justice satisfied!
By the glory
Christ was claimed on earth who died.
4 Son of God, His incarnation
Opened first the tale of grace;
Son of Man, in new creation
Leader of a chosen race!
Well may glory
Crown Him, in the ordered place!
