1 See Him—Jesus, the Saviour who came to earth,
Gave His life that the sinner might have a new birth;
Sinless—yet for our ransom made sin to be—
Jesus! Glorious in perfect humility.
Blessing and honor and glory be unto Him that was slain!
Wisdom and pow’r and dominion to Him who liveth again!
Dying, He purchased redemption—living, His name we adore!
Jesus our Saviour eternal, King of our lives evermore.
2 See Him—risen victorious o’er death and night,
Crown’d with glory and honor and wondrous might;
Saviour, King and Redeemer of men is He,
Jesus! See Him enthroned in His majesty. [Refrain]
3 Hear Him, sinner, now calling in love to thee!
Hear Him pleading so gently and tenderly!
Come, O come to His feet with thy sin-sick soul!—
Come, to Jesus, for Jesus can make thee whole. [Refrain]
4 See Him—Jesus, the Saviour of sinful men,
Coming, coming in glory to earth again!
Satan’s power and kingdom shall be o’erthrown,—
Jesus! Jesus shall reign then supreme alone. [Refrain]
