Original text and translations
1. In loud, exalted strains
The King of Glory praise.
O'er heaven and earth He reigns
Through everlasting days;
But, Sion, with His presence blest,
Is His delight, His chosen rest.
2. O King of Glory, come
And with Thy favor crown
This temple as Thy home,
This people as Thy own.
Beneath this roof vouchsafe to show
How God can dwell with men below.
3. Now let Thine ear attend
Our supplicating cries;
Now let our praise ascend,
Accepted, to the skies;
Now let Thy Gospel’s joyful sound,
Spread its celestial influence round.
4. Here may the list’ning throng
Imbibe Thy truth and love;
Here Christians join the song
Of seraphim above:
Till all who humbly seek Thy face
Rejoice in Thy abounding grace.
