HAIL THE REDEEMER
Hail the Lord of life and glory,
Hail the Lord who all things made;
Hail the heaven’s divine Creator,
He who earth’s foundation laid.
Hail the Son of God incarnate,
He who came to earth as man;
Hail the purpose of His coming,
And the wonder of His plan.
Hail the glory of His living,
Hail the mystery of His death;
Hail the love beyond describing,
When He yielded up His breath.
Hail the triumph of His rising,
Death destroyed and life regained;
Hail the living loving Saviour,
Full redemption He obtained.
Hail Him as the great sin-bearer,
Lamb of God, eternal Son;
Hail the glory of the Gospel,
Message of salvation won.
Hail Him till He comes in glory,
And in power, to claim His own;
Hail Him Lord and King, Redeemer,
Hail Him on His glorious throne.
