Representative Text

1 We meet again with hearts aflame,
To praise the dear Redeemer's name
With voices full of love and song:
Behold a happy throng!

Then shout aloud, while hills resound
Reecho with a joyful sound:
"Let Christ be King! let Christ be King!
To Him our praise we bring."

2 We thank our Saviour and our Lord
For all the sweetness of His word,--
The Cross at which we laid our sin,
The crown we hope to win. [Chorus]

3 O teach us, Lord, in this glad hour
The greatness of Thy Spirit's pow'r;
Reign Thou supreme in ev'ry heart--
The King of Love Thou art. [Chorus]

4 Be with us in our ev'ry home,
Be with us in the days to come;
May "Saved to Serve" our motto be,
While working still for Thee. [Chorus]
