1 My Saviour left His throne on high,
And came on earth for me to die;
What a glorious Redeemer!
At midnight in Gethsemane,
He drank the bitter cup for me;
What a glorious Redeemer!

Refrain:
What a glorious Redeemer is Jesus, my Saviour!
What a glorious Redeemer is Jesus, my Lord!

2 Beneath the heavy cross, low bent,
Up Calv’ry’s rugged steeps He went;
What a glorious Redeemer!
From sin and death to set me free,
There on the cross He died for me;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]

3 That all might know His pow’r to save,
He rose in triumph from the grave;
What a glorious Redeemer!
And now His cruel suff’rings o’er,
He reigns in bliss forevermore;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]

4 Reign too, O blessed King divine,
Forever in this heart of mine;
What a glorious Redeemer!
Thy sov’reign right in me I own;
In life or death I’m Thine alone;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]
