Representative Text

1 We praise you, Lord, for Jesus Christ,
Who died and rose again,
Who lives to break the pow'r of sin

Is grafted to the vine,
Is made a member of your house
And bears the cross as sign.

4 We praise you, Lord, for Jesus Christ,
He loves this child we bring:
He frees, forgives, and heals us all,
He lives and reigns as king.
