Representative Text

1 Hail to the Saviour! whose Passion is waiting;
Who by His death, our salvation will bring;
Sin will be conquered, life’s day will be dawning:
Hail to the Saviour, our tributes we bring!

Hail! all hail!
Sing hallelujahs to Jesus!
Hail! all hail!
He is our coming King.

2 Hail to our Jesus! all heaven is singing;
Loud with His praise all creation will ring;
After the cross and the tomb He is living:
Hail to our Jesus, who soon may be King! [Refrain]

3 Hail to Messiah! whose triumph is coming,
Coming the day when we crown Him as King;
Soon we may see Him in glory returning:
Hail to Messiah; His victory we sing; [Refrain]

4 Hail to the day when the tombs shall be opening—
Glorious day when my Lord shall appear!
Bringing my loved ones for whom I am longing:
Hail to the day when we meet in the air! [Refrain]
