Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour Thou,
 
With joy we worship Thee,
 
We know Thou hast redeemèd us,
 
By dying on the tree.

We know the love that brought Thee down,
 
Down from that bliss on high,
 
To meet our ruined souls in need,
 
On Calvary's cross to die.
2 Corinthians 8:9; John 17:5; John 19:16-30

Our Saviour Jesus—Lord Thou art,
 
Eternal is Thy love;
 
Eternal, too, our songs of praise
 
When with Thee, Lord, above.

E'en now we praise the grace divine,
 
The love that shines in Thee;
 
The rich One Thou—for us made poor,
 
By death to set us free.
2 Corinthians 8:9

We praise, we worship, we adore,
 
As round Thyself we meet;
 
Thy beauty, Lord, our souls transports,
 
While bowing at Thy feet.
Matthew 18:20; Psalm 27:4
6
Our theme of praise art Thou alone,
 
Thy cross, Thy work, Thy Word:
 
Oh! who can fathom all Thy love,
 
Thou living, blessèd Lord?
