If you know where to get a good pic­ture of Zeun­er (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Ascend Thy throne, al­migh­ty King,
And spread Thy glo­ries all abroad:
Let Thine own arm sal­va­tion bring,
And be Thou known the gra­cious God.

Let mill­ions bow be­fore Thy seat,
Let hum­ble mourn­ers seek Thy face;
Bring dar­ing re­bels to Thy feet,
Subdued by Thy vic­to­ri­ous grace.

O let the king­doms of the world
Become the king­doms of the Lord;
Let saints and an­gels praise Thy name,
Be Thou through Hea­ven and earth adored.
