Thou art the great High Priest;

So now, and till we die,
Thou hast prepared the feast

Sound we Thy praises high,
Of heavenly love:

And joyful sing;
In all our mortal pain

Let all the holy throng
None call on Thee in vain;

Who to Thy church belong,
Help Thou didst not disdain,

Unite and swell the song
Help from above.

To Christ our King! Amen.
This beautiful hymn from the third book of Clement of Alexandria, is said to
be the earliest known hymn of the Primitive Christian Church. About 200

The company of angels

Are praising Thee on high,
And mortal men and all things

Created make reply.
The people of the Hebrews

With palms before Thee went; Our praise and prayer and anthems

Before Thee we present.

3 In hastening to Thy passion

They raised their hymns of praise;
In reigning midst Thy glory

Our melody we raise.
Thou didst accept their praises,

Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King. Amen.

Jesus, Who dost condescend
To be called the sinner's Friend,
Hear us, as to Thee we pray,
Glorying in Thy name to-day. Amen.
