Ride on in Majesty
Henry Hart Milman (1791–1868)
RIDE on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin
O’er captive death and conquer’d sin!
Ride on! ride on in majesty!        5
The winged armies of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.
Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The last and fiercest strife is nigh;        10
The Father on his sapphire throne
Expects his own anointed Son.
Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
Bow thy meek head to mortal pain,        15
Then take, O God, thy power, and reign!
