LOOK, ye saints! the sight is glorious:
See the man of sorrows now,
From the fight return'd victorious;
Every knee to him shall bow.

Crown the Saviour, angels! crown him!
Rich the trophies Jesus bring:
In the seat of power enthrone him,
While the vault of heaven rings

Sinners in derision crown'd him,
Mocking thus the Saviour's claim:
Saints and angels! crowd around him,
Own his title, praise his name:

Hark! those bursts of acclamation!
Hark! those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;
Oh! what joy the sight affords!
