408 ~ Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor


Lord, enthroned in heav'nly splendor, First begotten from the dead, You alone, our strong defender, Lifting up Your people's head. Alleluia, Jesus, true and living Bread!


Tho' the lowliest form now veil You As of old in Bethlehem, Here as there Your angels hail You Branch and flow'r of Jesse's stem. Alleluia, We in worship join with them.


Paschal Lamb, Your off'ring finished Once for all where You were slain, In its fullness undiminished Shall forever more remain. Alleluia, Cleansing souls from every stain.


Life-imparting heav'nly manna, Stricken rock with streaming side, Heav'n and earth with loud hosanna Worship You the Lamb who died. Alleluia, Ris'n, ascended, glorified!
