~Majestic Sweetness Sits Enthroned

 

       Samuel Stennet, a Baptist minister, greatly honored by British statesmen, and was able to means of this influence to moderate the intolerance with which Baptists were regarded in those days.  King George III was among his friends.

       Besides several volumes of sermons, Dr. Stennet wrote thirty-eight hymns.  Most of these were contributed to Rippon’s famous collection, which was published in 1787. 

       His greatest hymn, however, is the following, which was first published in 1787, as a hymn of nine stanzas (now condensed to six), with the title “Chief among Ten Thousand; or, the Excellencies of Christ,” and with the Scripture reference: Solomon’s Song 5:10-16:

Majestic Sweetness [1]

 

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

Who fill the heav’nly train.

3           He saw me plunged in deep distress,

And flew to my relief;

For me He bore the shameful cross,

And carried all my grief.

4           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.

5           Since from Thy bounty I receive

Such proofs of love divine,

Had I a thousand hearts to give,

Lord, they should all be Thine.
