1 See! the conq’ring Hero comes,
Not with noise of fife and drums;
Comes to rule each heart with love,
As he rules the host above.

He comes, the Son of God;
He gives the world his blood;
He comes to be our Lord;
The conq’ring Her comes.

2 Comes to fill the world with light;
Comes to give the blind their sight;
Comes to set the captive free;
Comes to reign eternally. [Chorus]

3 Comes to live with men of sin;
Comes with pow’r the right to win;
He’s the only way to God;
He is Savior, he is Lord. [Chorus]
