1
Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
Upon the Savior’s brow
His head with radiant glories crowned
His lips with grace o’erflow
His lips with grace o’erflow

2
To Christ the Lord let every tongue
Its noblest tribute bring
When He’s the subject of the song
Who can refuse to sing
Who can refuse to sing

3
Survey the beauties of His face
And on His glories dwell
Think of the wonders of His grace
And all His triumphs tell
And all His triumphs tell

4
No mortal can with Him compare
Among the sons of men
Fairer is He than all the fair
Who fill the heav’nly train
Who fill the heav’nly train

5
He saw me plunged in deep distress
And flew to my relief
For me He bore the shameful cross
And carried all my grief
And carried all my grief

6
His hand a thousand blessings pours
Upon my guilty head:
His presence gilds my darkest hours
And guards my sleeping bed
And guards my sleeping bed

7
To Him I owe my life and breath
And all the joys I have
He makes me triumph over death
And saves me from the grave
And saves me from the grave

8
To Heav’n the place of His abode
He brings my weary feet
Shows me the glories of my God
And makes my joys complete
And makes my joys complete

9
Since from His bounty I receive
Such proofs of love divine
Had I a thousand hearts to give
Lord they should all be Thine
Lord they should all be Thine
