Horatius Bonar, 1866
Blessing and honor and glory and power,|
Wisdom and riches and strength evermore
Give ye to Him Who our battle hath won
Whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne.
2. Into the heav'n of the heav'ns hath He gone,
3. Soundeth the heaven of the heavens with His Name;
4. Past are the darkness, the storm, and the war,|
Come is the radiance, that sparkles afar,
Breaketh the gleam of the day without end,
Riseth the Sun that shall never descend.
5. Ever ascendeth the song and the joy;
6. Life of all life, and true Light of all light,
7. Give we the glory and praise to the Lamb;|
Take we the robe and the harp and the palm;
Sing we the song of the Lamb that was slain,
Dying in weakness, but rising to reign.
