Full Text

1 To Christ, our Lord and faithful Friend,
A grateful song we raise;
His love is true till time shall end,
And His shall be the praise.

Refrain:
Sing the song, the song of Love,
Redeeming Love,
Redeeming Lord;
Sing the song, the joyful song,
That fills the courts above.

2 He leaves the homage angels give,
To dwell with men below;
He gave His life that we might live,
Because He loved us so. [Refrain]

3 And when we reach our home above,
And tell our triumphs o’er,
We’ll sing of His Redeeming Love,
And praise Him evermore. [Refrain]
