Translated to English from Latin: John Mason Neale

Christ is made the sure foundation
Christ the head and cornerstone
Chosen of the Lord and precious
Binding all the Church in one
Holy Zion’s help forever
And her confidence alone

All that dedicated city
Dearly loved of God on high
In exultant jubilation
Pours perpetual melody
God the One in Three adoring
In glad hymns eternally

To this temple where we call Thee
Come O Lord of Hosts today
With Thy wonted lovingkindness
Hear Thy servants as they pray
And Thy fullest benediction
Shed within its walls alway

Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants
What they ask of Thee to gain
What they gain from Thee forever
With the blessèd to retain
And hereafter in Thy glory
Evermore with Thee to reign

Laud and honor to the Father
Laud and honor to the Son
Laud and honor to the Spirit
Ever Three and ever One
Consubstantial co-eternal
While unending ages run

Come Thou Almighty King

Song written by:
Original in English: Writer Unknown

Come Thou almighty King
Help us Thy name to sing help us to praise
Father all glorious o’er all victorious
Come and reign over us Ancient of Days

Jesus our Lord arise
Scatter our enemies and make them fall
Let Thine almighty aid our sure defense be made
Our souls on Thee be stayed Lord hear our call

Come Thou incarnate Word
Gird on Thy mighty sword our prayer attend
Come and Thy people bless and give Thy Word success
Spirit of holiness on us descend

Come holy Comforter
Thy sacred witness bear in this glad hour
Thou who almighty art now rule in every heart
And ne’er from us depart Spirit of power

To Thee great One in Three
Eternal praises be hence evermore
Thy sovereign majesty may we in glory see
And to eternity love and adore

Original in English: Stanza 2 by Godfrey Thring, Stanza 1, 3, 4 by Matthew Bridges

Crown Him with many crowns
The Lamb upon His throne
Hark! How the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own
Awake my soul and sing
Of Him who died for thee
And hail Him as thy matchless king
Through all eternity

Crown Him the virgin’s son
The God incarnate born
Whose arm those crimson trophies won
Which now His brow adorn
Fruit of the mystic rose
As of that rose the stem
The root whence mercy ever flows
The Babe of Bethlehem

Crown Him the Son of God
Before the worlds began
And ye who tread where He hath trod
Crown Him the Son of Man
Who every grief hath known
That wrings the human breast
And takes and bears them for His own
That all in Him may rest

Crown Him the Lord of life
Who triumphed o’er the grave
And rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save
His glories now we sing
Who died and rose on high
Who died eternal life to bring
And lives that death may die

Crown Him the Lord of peace
Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole that wars may cease
And all be prayer and praise
His reign shall know no end
And round His piercèd feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet

Crown Him the Lord of love
Behold His hands and side
Those wounds yet visible above
In beauty glorified
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight
But downward bends his burning eye
At mysteries so bright

Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n
Enthroned in worlds above
Crown Him the king to whom is giv’n
The wondrous name of Love
Crown Him with many crowns
As thrones before Him fall
Crown Him ye kings with many crowns
For He is king of all

Crown Him the Lord of lords
Who over all doth reign
Who once on earth the incarnate Word
For ransomed sinners slain
Now lives in realms of light
Where saints with angels sing
Their songs before Him day and night
Their God Redeemer king

Crown Him the Lord of years
The Potentate of time
Creator of the rolling spheres
Ineffably sublime
All hail Redeemer hail!
For Thou has died for me
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
Throughout eternity
