Hymn 343 - ""Lord, what is man?" `Tis Christ who died,"
"Lord, what is man?" 'Tis Christ who died,
And all Thy nature glorified;
Thy righteousness and grace displayed
When He for sins atonement made;
Obedient unto death, was slain—
Worthy is He o'er all to reign!
Thy counsels ere the world began
All centred in the Son of man;
Head of the church His destined place,
Thy glory radiant in His face.
To Him, enthroned in majesty,
Let every creature bend the knee!
Worthy, O Son of man, art Thou
Of every crown that decks Thy brow;
Worthy art Thou to be adored
And owned as universal Lord;
O hasten that long-promised day
When all shall own Thy rightful sway!
