Christ is the world's redeemer
Lyrics Christ is the world's redeemer, the lover of the pure, the fount of heavenly wisdom, our trust and hope secure, the armour of his soldiers, the lord of earth and sky, our health while we are living, our life when we shall die. Christ has our host surrounded with clouds of martyrs bright who wave their palms in triumph and fire us for the fight. For Christ the cross ascended to save a world undone and, suffering for the sinful, our full redemption won. Down in the realm of darkness he lay a captive bound, but at the hour appointed he rose, a victor crowned, and now, to heaven ascended, he sits upon the throne in glorious dominion, his Father's and his own. Glory to God the Father, the unbegotten One; all honour be to Jesus, his sole-begotten Son; and to the Holy Spirit -- the perfect Trinity. Let all the worlds give answer: 'Amen, so let it be'.
