1. In lands where the Andes rise crowned to the sun,
In lands where the rivers flow mighty and strong,
Where Antarctic waves beat an unconquered song,
And forests untrodden stand virgin and tall.

Refrain
Let the Christ that is living reign over all!
Let the Christ that is living reign over all!

2. Where struggle in birth throes a new race of men—
The sons of the Incas, the sons of old Spain—
Thro’ darkness and error, thro’ striving and pain,
May angels of righteousness sound forth the call, [Refrain]

3. Not Christ on the cross with His head bowed in death,
But Christ who in triumph arose from the grave;
The Christ who is present thro’ all time to save;
The Christ who delivers from death’s gloomy pall.

4. Whose grace in man's weakness is strong to prevail,
Whose love to the fallen brings new hope of love,
To th'arm battling evil leads strength for the strife,
Whose hand guides the nations whatever befall. [Refrain]
