Ride On, Ride On, O Savior King

Full Text

1 Ride on, ride on, O Saviour-King,
To set the sinner free!
To sin-cursed souls salvation bring
And peace eternally!
Ride on to dark Gethsemane,
To untold agony,
And on the Cross of Calvary
Procure our victory!

2 Ride on, ride on, O Saviour-King,
To claim the hearts of men!
Now death has lost its dreadful sting
And hope is born again.
O come, in human hearts to reign;
Suppress the pow'r of sin!
Our own endeavor is in vain,
Lord, Thou must help us win!

3 Ride on, ride on, O Saviour-King,
Ride on o'er land and sea,
For You alone to man can bring
Eternal liberty.
Ride on to sin-bound nations, Lord,
Until each heart shall own
Your saving, sanctifying word,
And bow before Thy throne.
