Christ the King

Hymn for Christ the King

I just rediscovered this hymn in my Westminster Hymnal. Enjoy!

Hail Redeemer, King Divine

Hail Redeemer King divine!
Priest and Lamb, the throne is thine,
King, whose reign shall never cease,
Prince of everlasting peace.

Angels, saints and nations sing
"Praised be Jesus Christ, our King;
Lord of life, earth sky and sea,
King of love on Calvary."

King, whose name creation thrills
Rule our minds, our hearts our wills
Till in peace each nation rings
With thy praises, King of Kings. (to chorus...)

King most holy, King of Truth,
Guide the lowly, guide the youth
Christ thou King of glory bright
Be to us eternal light.(to chorus...)

Shepherd King, o'er mountains steep
Homeward bring the wandering sheep;
Shelter in one royal fold
States and kingdoms, new and old. (to chorus...)

WERDE MUNTER,
J. Schop, c. 1664.
