Majestic Sweetness Sits Enthroned Lyrics
1 Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
upon the Savior’s brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
His lips with grace overflow,
His lips with grace overflow.
2 No mortal can with Him compare,
among the sons of men;
fairer is He than all the fair
who fill the heavenly train,
who fill the heavenly 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,
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,
and saves me from the grave.

“Majestic Sweetness Sits Enthroned” is a Christian hymn that was composed by Samuel Stennett. It was first published in 1787.
This hymn discusses the majesty of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. While earthly kings can in some cases be ruthless and without mercy, the majesty of Jesus Christ is different.
The song calls it majestic sweetness. We are discussing here a king who not only rules but also showed his love by dying for his subjects. He is someone you can depend upon.
Samuel Stennett was born in Exeter, England in 1727. He was a Seventh-day Baptist Church pastor who was more known for his doctrinal works than for his song. He only composed a few hymns.
