Majestic Sweetness
Words by Samuel Stennett
Music by Thomas Hastings

Psalm 104:1
"Bless the LORD, O my soul.  O LORD my God,
thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty."


          Majestic sweetness sits enthroned,
          Upon the Savior's brow;
          His head with radiant glories crowned,
          His lips with grace o'er flow,
          His lips with grace o'er flow.

          No mortal can with Him compare,
          Among the sons of men;
          Fairer is He than all the fair,
          Who fill the heav'nly train,
          Who fill the heav'nly train.

          He saw me plunged in deep distress,
          And flew to my relief;
          For me He bore the shameful cross,
          And carried all my grief,
          And carried all my grief.

          To Him I owe my life and breath,
          And all the joys I have;
          He makes me triumph over death,
          And saves me from the grave,
          And saves me from the grave
