217. A hymn of glory let us sing

1. A hymn of glory let us sing,
new hymns throughout the world shall ring;
by a new way none ever trod
Christ takes his place--the throne of God!

2. You are a present joy, O Lord;
you will be ever our reward;
and great the light in you we see
to guide us to eternity.

3. O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
all praise to you let earth accord,
who are, while endless ages run,
with Father and with Spirit, One.
