1. To Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King,
Who is the world's salvation,
All Praise and homage do we bring,
and thanks and adoration.
Refrain: Christ Jesus Victor,
Christ Jesus Ruler,
Christ Jesus Lord and Redeemer.
2. Thy reign extend, O King benign,
To ev'ry landand nation;
For in Thy Kingdom, Lord divine,
Alone we find salvation.
3. To thee and to Thy Church, great King,
We pledge our heart's oblation;
Until before Thy throne
we sing in endless jubilation.
