Representative Text

1 Who is this from Edom
With his garments dyed,
In his strength and greatness,
By the world denied?
This is Christ the mighty,
Strong alone to save,
All his foes are conquered,—
Victor o’er the grave.

Give him praise forever;
Give him throne and crown;
Tell the world the story,
Give the King renown!

2 Red is his apparel;
All the stains he wears
Cover our transgressions—
Sin of men he bears.
From the wine-press trodden,
Where he went alone,
He hath brought salvation,—
Grace to ev’ry one. [Refrain]

3 Hail the Lord of glory!
Hail the Saviour King;
Let the people praise him;
Let them tribute bring.
Now the path is open
To the pearly gate;
Go, ye ransomed sinners,
For the price was great. [Refrain]
