Representative Text

1 O Christ, what matchless beauty crowns Thy brow!
And what majestic splendor is Thine own!
Once lowly man, tho’ God and man, but now,
Exalted Lord and King of heaven’s throne.

Refrain:
To Thee, O Christ, be glory evermore,
And may each heart enthrone Thee as its King!
Let men and angels bow and Thee adore,
And thro’ Eternity Thy praises sing.

2 O Christ, how marvelous Thy grace to man!
And how compassionate Thy heart of love
That wrought so willingly salvation’s plan,
And brought Thee from Thy mansions above. [Refrain]

3 O Christ, Thou stoodest at the judgment bar,
And wast condemned to death upon the tree;
But now, of all the nations near and far,
The dead, the living, Thou the Judge shall be. [Refrain]
