Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany: Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor February 17, 2019

Lord, enthroned in heav’nly splendor,
first-begotten from the dead,
Thou alone, our strong Defender,
liftest up Thy people’s head.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Jesus, true and living Bread!
Jesus, true and living Bread!

Prince of Life, for us Thou livest,
by Thy body souls are healed;
Prince of Peace, Thy peace Thou livest,
by Thy blood is pardon sealed.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Word of God in flesh revealed,
Word of God in flesh revealed.

Paschal Lamb! Thine off’ring finished
once for all when Thou wast slain,
in its fullness undiminished
shall forevermore remain.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain,
Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain.

Great High Priest of our profession,
through the oil Thou ent’redst in;
by Thy mighty intercession
grace and mercy Thou dost win.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Only sacrifice for sin.
Only sacrifice for sin.

Life-imparting heav’nly Manna,
stricken Rock, with streaming side,
heav’n and earth with loud hosanna
worship Thee, the Lamb who died.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ris’n, ascended, glorified!
Ris’n, ascended, glorified!

George Hugh Bourne, 1874
