1Crowned in glory, robed in light,
Sceptred in the starry height,
Throned upon Thy emerald seat
With a rainbow at Thy feet,
Circled with a harping choir,
Burn before Thee lamps of fire.

2Kingdoms twain on earth are Thine
Lo! the Apostolic line
Draws from Thee, and Thee alone,
Ministry till time be done.
Kings by Thee have rule, and reign,
Bear the sword, and not in vain.

3Mission and Authority;
Sov'reign power devolve from Thee,
Thou of Kings, the King supreme,
Thee the Church's Head we deem;
Hear Thy people as they pray
On this Coronation day.

4Send Thy Spirit, unction shed,
On the consecrated head;
Wisdom and discretion grant
To Thy royal suppliant,
That by righteousness and right
He may govern, girt with might.

5When Thy servant's race is run,
Sets upon his task the sun,
May he hear the approving word
Spoken by his Sovereign Lord,
Steward, for thy service true,
Take the recompence, thy due. Amen.

Or may be sung to A. & M., Nos. 79, or 6.
