1 Jesus, the Christ of God,
The Father's blessed Son;
The Father's bosom thine abode,
The Father's love thine own:
Jesus, the Lamb of God,--
Who us from hell to raise
Hast shed thy reconciling blood,--
We give thee endless praise!
2 God, and yet man thou art!
True God, true man art thou;
Of man, and of man's earth a part,
One with us thou art now:
Great sacrifice for sin,
Giver of life for life,
Restorer of the peace within,
True ender of the strife.
3 To thee, the Christ of God,
Thy saints exulting sing;
The bearer of our heavy load,
Our own anointed King:
Rest of the weary, thou,
To thee, our rest, we come;
In thee to find our dwelling now,
Our everlasting home.

"Jesus, the Lamb of God,
Who us from hell to raise;"
