Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King


1. Jesus of Nazareth,Savior and King!Triumphant over death,Life thou didst bring,Leaving thy Father’s throne,On earth to live,Thy work to do alone,Thy life to give.

2. While of this broken breadHumbly we eat,Our thoughts to thee are ledIn rev’rence sweet.Bruised, broken, torn for usOn Calvary’s hill—Thy suff’ring borne for usLives with us still.

3. As to our lips the cupGently we press,Our hearts are lifted up;Thy name we bless!Guide us where’er we go,Till in the endLife evermore we’ll knowThrough thee, our Friend.
