Paris Breviary, 1736; translated by John Chandler, 1837
Conquering kings their titles take|
From the foes they captive make;
Jesus, by a nobler deed,
From the thousands he hath freed.
2. Yes: none other Name is given
3. We would gladly for that Name|
Bear the cross, endure the shame;
Joyfully for him to die
Is not death, but victory.
4. Jesus, who dost condescend
