Original text and translations
Sing the triumphs of your conquering
head, and crucified King ;
His achievements, when he vanquished
All our enemies, we'll sing :
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord, be thine.
Far above the highest Heaven
Thus he gloriously ascends,
Where the honor's to him given,
Every thought of man transcends.
There, exalted, live and reign, while
We admire thy wounds and blood,
Till we see thee come again, in
All the pomp and power of God.
