["The Lord is risʼn indeed !”— Then Justice asks no more : Mercy and Truth are now agreed, Which stood oppos'd before.]

"The Lord is ris'n indeed!"
He lives, the sinner's cause to plead,

Up to the courts of heaven with speed

Now is CHRIST risen from the dead, and become the first

And he hath on his vesture, and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. REV. xix. 16.
WHENCE those unusual bursts of joy?
2 [At sight of him, yon seraphs bright
They hail their Lord with new delight And crown him "King of Kings.”] 3 The brightest angel glory boasts, To him his tribute brings;
And joins high heav'n's assembled hosts, To crown him "King of Kings."
4 [Look up, ye saints, and while ye gaze, Forget all earthly things:
Unite to sing the SAVIOUR'S praise, And crown him "King of Kings."]
5 While heav'n in honour of his name, With exultation rings,
His saints on earth will own his claim, And crown him "King of Kings."
