45 (2)Psalm 45 Version 2CM
HAIL, mighty Jesus! how divine
   Is Thy victorious sword!
The strongest rebel must resign
    At Thy commanding word.
2  Deep are the wounds Thine arrows give,
    They pierce the hardest heart;
Thy smiles of grace the slain revive,
    And joy succeeds to smart.
3  Still gird Thy sword upon Thy thigh,
    Ride with majestic sway,
Go forth, blest Prince, triumphantly,
    And make Thy foes obey.
4  And when Thy victories are complete,
    When all the chosen race
Shall round the throne of glory meet,
    To sing Thy conquering grace . . .
5  O may my humble soul be found
    Among that favoured band!
And I with them Thy praise will sound
    Throughout Emmanuel’s land.
