The Savior Seated

Have you known the savior seated
   Far above the earth and sky?
His atoning work's completed.
   Now he sits, enthroned on high.

Do you know he's interceding?
   His compassion never dies.
Yes, he hears your heart-felt pleading,
   Sees your tears and hears your cries.

Give him honor, praise and glory
   Which his kingly throne demands.
Let your lips tell wide his story.
   Bow your heart and lift your hands.

He'll return again in power,
   Not in humble stable-birth.
We don't know the day or hour,
   But he comes to rule the earth.

Live or dead, you'll stand before him.
   Christ is Lord, and Christ alone.
Tremble now. Submit. Adore him
   Lest he curse you from his throne.

But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God. (Luke 22:69 ESV)

...and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
(Ephesians 1:19-23 ESV)
