God may "Fix in every heart of man / [His] everlasting throne"
Metaphor in Context
I will stablish the throne of His kingdom for ever.

--vii. 13.

  Son of God's eternal love,
    In glorious state descend,
  Bring Thy kingdom from above,
    That Satan's power may end;
  Universal Monarch reign,
And put the worldly kingdoms down,
  Fix in every heart of man
    Thine everlasting throne.
