Our Great King

Full Text

1 Our King completely satisfies,
He hears and helps his own;
To Christ above we lift our eyes,
And trust in him alone.

His name we sing, we hail him King,
Thro' earth and heav'n his praises ring,
Thro' earth and heav'n his praises ring.

2 'T is he receives the seeking soul,
Instructs in Wisdom's way;
The sin-sick one he maketh whole,
And leads him day by day. [Chorus]

3 Our King supplies our daily needs,
All others he transcends;
With wand'ring ones he gently pleads,
He keeps and he defends. [Chorus]
