1 We praise you, Lord, for Jesus Christ,
Who died and rose again,
Who lives to break the pow'r of sin
And over death to reign.
2 We praise you that this child now shares
The freedom Christ can give,
Has died to sin with Christ, and now
With Christ is raised to live.
3 We praise you, Lord, that now this child
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.
