Author unknown, c. 1757
John Bakewell, 1767; Martin Madan, 1760; Augustus M. Toplady. 1776 according to 1916 Episcopal Hymnal
Hail, Thou once despised Jesus!|
Hail, Thou Galilean King!
Thou didst suffer to release us;
Thou didst free salvation bring.
Hail, Thou universal Saviour,
Who hast borne our sin and shame,
By whose merits we find favor!
Life is given through Thy name.
2. Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
3. Jesus, hail, enthroned in glory,|
There forever to abide!
All the heavenly host adore Thee,
Seated at Thy Father's side.
There for sinners Thou art pleading,
There Thou dost our place prepare,
Ever for us interceding
Till in glory we appear.
4. Worship, honour, power, and blessing
