The King of Men.


O König aller Ehren

Behemb. 1606.

O King of Glory! David's Son!

Our Sovereign and our Friend!

In Heaven for ever stands Thy throne,

Thy kingdom hath no end:

Oh now to all men, far and near,

Lord, make it known, we pray.

That as in heaven all creatures here

May know Thee and obey.

The Eastern sages gladly bring

Their tribute-gifts to Thee;

They witness that Thou art their King,

And humbly bow the knee;

To Thee the Morning Star doth lead,

To Thee th' inspired Word,

We hail Thee, Saviour in our need,

We worship Thee, the Lord.

Ah look on me with pitying grace,

Though weak and poor I be,

Within Thy kingdom grant a place

Secure and blest to me.


Oh rescue me from all my woes,

And shield me with Thine arm

From Sin and Death, the mighty foes

That daily seek our harm.

And bid Thy Word, the fairest Star,

Within us clearly shine;

Keep sin and all false doctrine far,

Since Thou hast claim'd us Thine:

Let us Thy name aright confess,

And with Thy Christendom,

Our King and Saviour own and bless

Through all the world to come.
