Christ's mediatorial kingdom; or, His Divine and human nature
Hear what the Lord in vision said,
And made his mercy known:
|Sinners, behold your help is laid
On my Almighty Son.
|Behold the Man my wisdom chose
Among your mortal race:
His head my holy oil o'erflows,
The Spirit of my grace.
|High shall he reign on David's throne,
My people's better King;
My arm shall beat his rivals down,
And still new subjects bring.
|My truth shall guard him in his way,
With mercy by his side,
While in my name through earth and sea
He shall in triumph ride.
|Me for his Father and his God
He shall for ever own,
Call me his rock, his high abode,
And I'll support my Son.
|My first-born Son arrayed in grace
At my right hand shall sit;
Beneath him angels know their place,
And monarchs at his feet.
|My cov'nant stands for ever fast,
My promises are strong;
Firm as the heav'ns his throne shall last,
His seed endure as long.|
