1. To Jesus Christ, our sov'reign King,
Who is the world's salvation,
All praise and homage do we bring
And thanks and adoration.
Christ Jesus, Victor!
Christ Jesus, Ruler! 
Christ Jesus, Lord and Redeemer!

2. Your reign extend, O King benign,
To ev'ry land and nation;
For in your Kingdom, Lord divine,
Alone we find salvation. 
Christ Jesus, Victor!
Christ Jesus, Ruler! 
Christ Jesus, Lord and Redeemer!

3. To you, and to your church, great King,
We pledge our heart's oblation;
Until before your throne we sing
In endless jubilation.
Christ Jesus, Victor!
Christ Jesus, Ruler! 
Christ Jesus, Lord and Redeemer!
