Jesus, Mighty King in Zion


Jesus, Mighty King in Zion

With dignity

1. Jesus, mighty King in Zion,

Thou alone our guide shalt be.

Thy commission we rely on;

We will follow none but thee.

2. As an emblem of thy passion

And thy vict’ry o’er the grave,

We, who know thy great salvation,

Are baptized beneath the wave.

3. Fearless of the world’s despising,

We the ancient path pursue,

Buried with the Lord and rising

To a life divinely new.
