Representative Text

1 Make Christ King of men and nations,
Till all hearts obey His word;
Righteousness and peace shall follow
Earth’s allegiance to the Lord.

Refrain:
Make Christ King,
Make Christ King,
Let the sons of men their tribute bring;
Make Christ King,
Make Christ King,
Hail the world’s Redeemer!
We will make Christ King!

2 Born of God’s eternal mandate,
Our redemption Thou didst bring;
By the Cross we hail Thee victor,
Our Immanuel and King. [Refrain]

3 Let the ransomed host of heaven
Vie with us in glad acclaim,
Of the highest praise most worthy,
Sov’reign of eternal fame. [Refrain]
