4 We sing a mighty Jesus,

Whose voice could raise the dead; The sightless eyes He opened,

The famished souls He fed. Thou camest to deliver

Mankind from sin and shame; Redeemer and Life-giver,

We praise Thy holy Name.

5 We sing a coming Jesus;

The time is drawing near,
When Christ with all His Angels

In glory shall appear;
Lord,

save us, we entreat Thee, In this Thy day of grace, That we may gladly meet Thee

And see Thee face to face.

2 As with joyful steps they sped

To that lowly manger-bed,
There to bend the knee before
Him Whom heaven and earth adore,
So may we with willing feet

Ever seek the mercy-seat.
3 As they offered gifts most rare

At that manger rude and bare,
So may we with holy joy,
Pure and free from sin's alloy,
All our costliest treasures bring;
Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King.

4 Holy Jesus, every day

Keep us in the narrow way;
And when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide,

Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 5 In the heavenly country bright

Need they no created light,
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown,
Thou its Sun which goes not down;
There for ever may we sing
Alleluias to our King.
