“Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End”

with 2 comments

To God be the glory 11 11. 11 11 (without refrain)

Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End;
My Saviour, my Shepherd, my Lord, and my Friend;
The Righteous, the Holy, to you we will bring
Our prayers and our praises, a sweet offering.

A Prophet revealing by Spirit and Word;
A King all-triumphant with almighty sword;
A Priest interceding before heaven’s throne,
Whose sacrifice does for his people atone.

The Word Everlasting, Creator of all;
The Root of King David, but laid in a stall;
The light of God’s heaven – no longer afar -
Comes into our darkness, a bright Morning Star.

The promised salvation, God’s Yes and Amen;
The Lion of Judah, the Lamb that was slain;
The one God incarnate, the Son of God’s love,
Who stooped down to conquer from heaven above.

The Truth and the Life and the new, living Way;
The Conqueror of hell, whom e’en devils obey;
All-glorious, victorious, the church’s crowned Head,
The Judge of the living, the Judge of the dead.

The great Lord of Glory, the First and the Last;
The light of the world, and our crucified Christ;
Himself both Redeemer and ransom-price paid,
All glory to him who atonement has made!

  1. What is the name of this hymn… Why don’t you have them named properly. It would really be alot of help.

  2. Greetings, Nicholas -

    This hymn does not have a name, as such. I am afraid I don’t know what you mean by naming the hymns properly, and how that would help. Perhaps you would be kind enough to let me know, or even make a few suggestions?

    At present, all of the psalms and hymns that are on this site simply take the first line as their title. If you go to the “Posts concerning . . .” heading on the sidebar, and scroll down to find “Hymns & psalms” you will go to a page with all the hymns and psalms in order of posting (or click here). Perhaps this will be of assistance?
