264: ENTHRONED on high, eternal Wordby R. Morshead
1 ENTHRONED on high, eternal Word,
As Son of man, as sovereign Lord,
'Tis now by faith on Thee we rest,
Till all Thy title have confessed.
2 Thou hast our souls from sins made clean,
Thy Spirit gives us strength within;
Whilst Thou for us in all our need,
At God's right hand dost ever plead.
3 O keep us in the narrow way,
That ne'er from Thee our footsteps stray;
Sustain our weakness, calm our fear,
And to Thy presence keep us near.
4 O be it thus till that blest day
When God shall wipe all tears away;
Quickly, 'tis promised in the word,
E'en so, Amen. Come, Jesus, Lord.
