The Enthroned One

David Murray, Glasgow

He left His, throne above
To show us His great love
And then upon the cross of shame
He died for us;
So now we can draw near,
True love has cast out fear
For Jesus met the claims of God
To free us thus.

The King is on the throne,
He has the triumph won
We shall in glory praise His name
When time has run;
The blood has now been shed,
The price has now been paid,
A greater ransom ne’er was given
Beneath the sun!

He sits upon the throne
To reign as Lord of all
The Father’s well beloved Son
Enthroned on high;
Soon He will come again
To take His loved ones home,
Then Christ and His redeemed
shall be forever nigh.

Can be sung to the tune ‘Leoni’.
