1 Crowned as king forever, high and holy One,
Jesus, our Redeemer, may Thy will be done.
Ever interceding at the throne above,
Bearing sin and sorrow, light of truth and love.

Christ, the only Savior, for the world we sing;
Unto Him who loved us, all the world we bring.

2 Only hope of Heaven, gift beyond compare,
Rest for all the weary, hear, O hear our prayer.
Strength of all the tempted, mighty still to save.
Pitiful and tender, Lord, Thy help we crave. [Refrain]

3 Infinite defender, only helper true,
Ready to redeem us, Lord, our strength renew.
Name above all others, Christ, the sinner’s friend,
Jesus Christ our Savior, keep us to the end. [Refrain]
