1 Praise the Savior now and ever;
praise him, all beneath the skies;
prostrate lying, suff'ring, dying
on the cross, a sacrifice.
Vict'ry gaining, life obtaining,
now in glory he doth rise.
2. Man's work faileth, Christ's availeth;
he is all our righteousness;
he, our Saviour, has for ever
set us free from dire distress.
Through his merit we inherit
light and peace and happiness.
3. Sin's bonds severed; we're delivered;
Christ has bruised the serpent's head;
death no longer is the stronger;
hell itself is captive led.
Christ has risen from death's prison;
o'er the tomb he light has shed.
4. For his favor, praise for ever
unto God the Father sing;
praise the Savior, praise him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King.
Praise the Spirit; through Christ's merit
he doth us salvation bring.
