Lord, what is man? 'Tis He who died And all Thy nature glorified; Thy righteousness and grace displayed When He for sin atonement made; Obedient unto death, was slain — Worthy is He o'er all to reign. Thy counsels 'ere the world began, All centered in the Son of man; Him destined to the highest place, Head of His church through sovereign grace 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!
