HYMN Lyrics Text: The Royal Banners

HYMN Lyrics Text: The Royal Banners


HYMN Lyrics Text: Humbly We Adore Thee








1. The royal banners forward go

The cross shines forth

in mystic glow,

where He in flesh,

our flesh who made.

Our sentence bore,

our ransom paid.




2. Where deep for us

the spear was dyed.

Life's torrent rushing

from His side,

to wash us in that precious flood,

where mingled water flowed

and blood.




3. Fulfilled is all

that David told

in true prophetic song of old,

amidst the nations, God,

Saith He,

hath reigned and triumphed

from the tree.




4. O tree of beauty,

tree of light!

O tree with royal purple light.

elect on whose triumphal breast,

Those holy limbs

should find their rest.




5. On whose dear arms,

so widely flung,

the weight of his world's

ransom hung,

the price of human kind to pay

And spoil the spoiler of his prey.




6. O cross, our own reliance, hail!

So may Thy power with us avail,

to give new virtue to the saint

and pardon to the penitent




7. To Thee, eternal Three in One,

let homage meet by all be done,

Whom by the cross

Thou dost restore.

Preserve and govern evermore.
