743. Christ for the World! We Sing

1 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with loving zeal--
the poor, and them that mourn,
the faint and overborne,
sinsick and sorrow-worn,
for Christ to heal.

2 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with fervent prayer--
the wayward and the lost,
by restless passions tossed,
redeemed at countless cost
from dark despair.

3 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with one accord--
with us the work to share,
with us reproach to dare,
with us the cross to bear,
for Christ our Lord.

4 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with joyful song--
the newborn souls, whose days,
reclaimed from error's ways,
inspired with hope and praise,
to Christ belong.
