Bishop Heber

LORD of mercy and of might,

Of mankind the life and light;

Maker, Teacher, Infinite,

Jesus, hear and save.


Who, when sin’s tremendous doom

Gave creation to the tomb,

Didst not scorn the virgin’s womb,

Jesus, hear and save.


Mighty Monarch, Saviour mild,

Humbled to a mortal child,

Captive, beaten, bound, reviled,

Jesus, hear and save.


Throned above celestial things,

Borne aloft on angels’ wings,

Lord of lords, and King of kings,

Jesus, hear and save.


Soon to come to earth again,

Judge of angels and of men,

Hear us now, and hear us then,

Jesus, hear and save.
