Name of all majesty,
fathomless mystery,
King of the ages
by angels adored;
power and authority,
splendour and dignity,
bow to his majesty –
Jesus is Lord!

Child of our destiny,
God from eternity,
love of the Father
on sinners outpoured;
see now what God has done
sending his only Son,
Christ the beloved One –
Jesus is Lord!

Saviour of Calvary,
costliest victory,
darkness defeated
and Eden restored;
born as a man to die,
nailed to a cross on high,
cold in the grave to lie –
Jesus is Lord!

Source of all sovereignty,
light, immortality,
life everlasting
and Heaven assured;
so with the ransomed, we
praise him eternally,
Christ in his majesty –
Jesus is Lord!
