Come in, Thou blessèd, honored Lord!
By earth, by Heav’n, by all, adored!
We hail Thee, welcome!
Take Thy throne, and in Thy Zion reign alone.
Our only Lord and God Thou art!
Reign Thou the Sovereign of our hearts,
Thou King of glory ever blest,
By angels and by men confessed.
Thy Church now enter, Lord divine;
And be the kingdom ever Thine;
We hail Thee welcome to Thy seat,
And lay our honors at Thy feet.
O happy Church, thy bliss how great;
The King, in all His heav’nly state,
With thee forever will reside:
Thy Husband He and thou the bride.
O Lord! our grateful hearts rejoice,
Since Thou hast made our souls Thy choice;
While here our songs to Thee shall rise,
And join the chorus of the skies.
