O Lord with joy we hail Thee now,
"The Firstborn from the dead";
The Victor's crown is rightly place
Upon Thy head.
The key of hades and of death
Are in Thy hand, O Lord!
Thou are the mighty Conqueror,
Be Thou adored!
The Father's glory claimed Thee, Lord,
When all Thy work was done;
And death no longer could detain
His Holy One.
And now the Father finds His rest
In Thee, the glorified;
While to our heart Thou art more dear
Than all beside.
Thou, Lord, our satisfaction art,
The well-spring of our joy;
Thy praises shall, through endless days,
Our lips employ.
(This is another by T Willey, published in "The Songs of the Lord", 1931.)
