We Homage Pay

Full Text

1 We homage pay to Christ, our king

He died upon dark Calvary,

Refrain:
We homage pay the Savior true,
Who guides our feet along the way;

More perfectly His wondrous fame
To all the world we will proclaim. [Refrain]

3 We homage pay before Thy throne,
Rejoiced to be in truth Thine own;
E’en though Thy name we praise, adore,
Each day we long to love Thee more. [Refrain]
