Representative Text

1 From heav’n to earth the Saviour came,
To save us from the pow’r of sin,
That we eternal life might claim,
To Paradise might enter in.

He has brought us
His redemption,
He has brought us liberty,
And we hail Him,
Proudly hail Him,
King of kings eternally.

2 He conquered sin and broke its pow’r,
He spotless lived without a stain,
Was faithful in each trial hour,
Though scourged and crucified and slain. [Chorus]

3 He rose triumphant o’er the grave
Brought life, eternal life, to light,
And proved His loving pow’r to save
The soul that trusts His gracious might. [Chorus]
