Christ is the world’s Redeemer, 

The lover of the pure, 

Our fount of heav’nly wisdom, 

Our trust and hope secure.

Sustainer of creation,

He's Lord of earth and sky,

Our health while we are living,

Our life when we shall die.

We all our sins were bearing,

Our guilt would not erase,

But God, his Son not sparing,

Sent him to take our place.

This Christ the cross ascended

To save a world undone,

And suff'ring for the sinful,

Our full redemption won.


We sing, "Glory, hallelujah!”

Let the nations join the theme!

We sing, "Glory, hallelujah!

To our Redeemer King.”

Down in the realms of darkness,

He strode in victory,

And at the hour appointed,

He rose triumphantly!

And now, to heav'n ascended,

He sits upon the throne

In glorious dominion,

His Father's and his own.


All praise to God the Father,

The unbegotten One,

All honor be to Jesus,

His sole begotten Son,

And to the Holy Spirit,

The perfect Trinity.

Let all the world give answer:

"Amen, and let it be."
