Great Captain Of SalvationBy J. G. Deck (1807-1884)
Great Captain of salvation,
Now crowned with highest glory,
We joyful raise our songs of praise,
And lowly bow before Thee.
We worship and adore Thee,
Each heart and tongue confessing,
To Thee once slain—worthy to reign—
Be honor, power and blessing!
Thou hast the cross endured
In love beyond all measure,
The curse, the grave, Thy saints to save,
And have us as Thy treasure.
We see Thee as the Victim,
Our sins and sorrows bearing,
The Lamb once slain, alive again,
The crown of glory wearing.
Head of the vast creation,
To God's right hand ascended:
Thy saints rejoice with heart and voice,
Before Thy feet low bended.
We own Thee, Lord, exulting
In all Thy joy and glory,
And long to be on high with Thee
Where all shall bow before Thee.
