141. 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.
You are, while endless ages run,
With Father and with Spirit One.
