Christ is King

Full Text

1 Come, friends sing, of the faith that’s so dear to me,
Revealed thro’ God’s Son, in Galilee;
He brought peace on earth and good will to the sons of men,
Go tell it to the world, her King reigns again.

I am so happy in Jesus,
Captivity’s Captor is He;
Angels rejoice when a soul’s saved,
Some day we like Him shall be,
Sorrow and joy have the same Lord,
Valley of shadows shall sing;
Death has its life, its door opens in heaven eternally,
Christ is King.

2 Crucified, thus He suffered and bled for me,
Death and the grave won sin’s victory;
Then the sky grew dark and the temple veil rent in twain,
Rocks rent, and angels came, for He lived again. (Chorus)

3 At His feet, on old Olivet’s Hill, they say,
Cloud chariots halted, took Christ away;
Then the angels came and to wond’ring disciples said
He’ll come, and earth and sea shall yield up their dead. (Chorus)
