Majestic sweetness sits enthroned

1
Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
  Upon the Savior’s brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
  His lips with grace o’erflow.
2
No mortal can with Him compare
  Among the sons of men;
Fairer is He than all the fair
  That fill the heavenly train.
3
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.
4
To God, the Father, my abode,
  He brings my weary feet;
Shows me the glories of my God,
  And makes my joys complete.
5
Since from His bounty I receive
  Such proofs of love divine,
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
  Lord, they should all be Thine.

There are 2 additional stanzas between following stanza 1 above:

To Christ, the Lord, let every tongue

Its noblest tribute bring

When He’s the subject of the song,

Who can refuse to sing?

----------------------------------------------

Survey the beauties of His face,

And on His glories dwell;

Think of the wonders of His grace,

And all His triumphs tell,

-----------------

The following 2 stanzas follow the hymnal.net stanza #2

He saw me plunged in deep distress

And flew to my relief;

For me He bore the shameful cross

And carried all my grief,

------------

His hand a thousand blessings pours

Upon my guilty head:

His presence gilds my darkest hours,

And guards my sleeping bed,

---------------

Line #1 of hymnal.net stanza #4 originally says:

To Heav’n, the place of His abode,
