Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King


    Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King


    1. Jesus of Nazareth,

    Savior and King!

    Triumphant over death,

    Life thou didst bring,

    Leaving thy Father’s throne,

    On earth to live,

    Thy work to do alone,

    Thy life to give.

    2. While of this broken bread

    Humbly we eat,

    Our thoughts to thee are led

    In rev’rence sweet.

    Bruised, broken, torn for us

    On Calvary’s hill—

    Thy suff’ring borne for us

    Lives with us still.

    3. As to our lips the cup

    Gently we press,

    Our hearts are lifted up;

    Thy name we bless!

    Guide us where’er we go,

    Till in the end

    Life evermore we’ll know

    Through thee, our Friend.
