468. Son of God, eternal Saviour

1 Son of God, eternal Saviour,
source of life and truth and grace,
woman's Son, whose birth incarnate
hallows all our human race:
great High Priest, who, throned in glory,
for your own will ever plead,
fill us with your love and pity,
heal our wrongs, and help our need.

2 Lord, as you have lived for others,
so may we for others live;
freely have your gifts been granted,
freely may your servants give.
Yours the gold and yours the silver,
yours the wealth of sea and land,
we but stewards of your bounty
held in trust at your command.

3 Come, Lord Jesus, reign among us,
King of Love, and Prince of Peace;
hush the storm of strife and passion,
bid its cruel discords cease.
Yours the prayer, and yours the purpose,
that your people should be one,
grant from heaven, our hope’s fruition;
here on earth your will be done.
