Preparing Christ the King's feast: hymn "To Thee, Prince of All That Be"

1. To thee, O Prince of all that

be, Thou Christ, O King

eternally;

O Framer of the mind and

heart, Our one true Judge we

say thou art.

2. The wicked protest, wail

and cry, Christ Jesus' reign

they would deny;

Rejoice we at thy glorious

name, Thou Highest King we

do proclaim.

3. O Christ! The Source of all

our peace, Make all our sinful

thoughts to cease;

And still in us our loves

misplaced, As Thy one

sheepfold be we embraced.

4. For this, hanging on cruel

tree, With arms outstretched,

for all to see;

His heart is pierced by

soldier's spear, Revealing

burning love most dear.

5. From this the altar of the

tree Thy blood flows forth

from Calvary;

As wine to us it doth appear,

To thine own heart it draws us

near.

6. Thou Governor of all that

be, May all thy creatures

honour thee;

All those who rule, O Lord

renew! Source of all precepts

just and true.

7. To regal glory, all submit,

All crowns and honours we do

remit;—

To thy scepter—so sweet and

mild! Submit we as a little

child.

8. All glory be, Jesu, to thee,

Thy scepter over all that be;

All glory, as is ever meet,

To Father and to Paraclete.

Amen

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
