Everlasting glory - The Mighty Saviour
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Mighty Saviour.

1. Everlasting glory
  unto Jesus be!
Sing aloud the story
  of his victory!
How he left the splendour
  of his home on high,
came, in love so tender,
  on the cross to die.

2. Yes! he came from heaven,
  suffered in our stead;
praise to him be given,
  "First-born from the dead!"
Jesus, meek and lowly,
  came the lost to save;
he, the Victim Holy,
  triumphed o'er the grave.

3. We in death were lying,
  lost in hopeless gloom;
Jesus by his dying
  vanquished e'en the tomb!
Burst its iron portal,
  rolled away the stone,
rose in life immortal
  to the Father's throne.

4. Christ is Lord of Glory,
  sing we now today;
tell abroad the story,
  own his rightful sway!
Sing aloud! and never
  cease to spread his fame,
triumph, now and ever,
  in the Saviour's name!

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 134-135.
