Representative Text

What Saviour comes from Edom,
With garments dyed in red?
Who is it wears the thorn crown
Upon His wounded head?
Who is it dies to set us free?
The Holy One of Israel He.
Glory we give with one accord
To Thy blest Resurrection, Lord.

O people disobedient,
With shame your Saviour see;
For, He you called to judgment,
And nailed upon the tree,
Hath burst the bands that would enslave,
And risen a victor from the grave.
Glory we give with one accord,
To Thy blest Resurrection, Lord.
