Lyrics

Verse 1
Who came down from heav’n to earth?
Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Came a child of lowly birth?
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Chorus
Sound the chorus loud and clear,
He hath brought salvation near;
None so precious, none so dear:
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Verse 2
Who was lifted on the tree?
Jesus Christ our Saviour;
There to ransom you and me?
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Verse 3
Who hath promised to forgive?
Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Who hath said, ‘Believe and live?’
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Verse 4
Who is now enthroned above?
Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Whom should we obey and love?
Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Verse 5
Who again from heav’n shall come?
Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Take to glory all his own?
Jesus Christ our Saviour.
