1. The King of Kings, Christ Jesus reigns

In loving wisdom he ordains
The course of all creation!

Christ, keep us ever before you!

Word from endless ages spoken;
Enfleshed on earth, his voice was heard
And Satan's might was broken! Refrain

To heaven's glorious portal;
If in our hearts your truth has sway,
We too have life immortal! Refrain
