|47 (2)||Psalm 47 Version 2||7 7. 7 7|
|GLORIOUS is the Lord Most High,
Awesome is His majesty;
He His sovereign sway maintains,
King o’er all the earth He reigns.
|2||Jesus is gone up on high,
Takes His seat above the sky:
Shout the angel-choirs aloud,
Echoing to the trump of God.
|3||Sons of earth the triumph join:
Praise Him with the host divine;
Emulate the heavenly powers;
Their victorious Lord is ours.
|4||Power is all to Jesus given,
Power o’er hell, and earth, and Heaven;
Power He now to us imparts;
Praise Him with believing hearts.
|5||Wonderful in saving power,
Him let all our hearts adore;
Earth and Heaven repeat the cry
‘Glory be to God Most High!’
|Charles Wesley, 1707-88|
